    Most of the photos here were taken with my 7D, and only because because I don't have a telephoto or video on my Leica so The Watering Hole is probably the only place I can post them.

    We went to have a fish-n-chips lunch out at the park on Sunday, on the park bench:


    While we were eating, this little thing popped out from the bush:



    It hung out for a while, then it disappeared back into the bush:



    There's never just one, so after finishing our lunch we went to have a look. They were hard to spot but once we saw them, there was a whole extended family in amongst the native bushland:


    This one was doing its best impersonation of a tree:


    Somebody's dog elsewhere in the park got loose and it spooked the kangaroos, the kangaroos went zooming past us. I managed to catch a very short video clip on my 7D of them hopping past us, I'll post it once I upload it to youtube. but there's a shot of them on their way:


    Luckily the dog never even got close.

    By the way, they're the Eastern Greys, the second largest of the kangaroo family.

    Wonderful, James!! Can't wait to see the movie!:popcorm2:

    And as for posting them with that camera - you can post them in any of the appropriate image threads. We're a very convivial bunch...and our Serious Compacts extended family is quite large, just like your Eastern Greys'.:grouphug:
