    Even though I see them every single day I just never tire of roos (kangaroos). Amazingly they say the longer and higher they jump, the less energy they use. Astounding creatures. I so adore them in motion….maybe in the next life (if I'm good in this one) I'll experience that feeling for myself? :cloud-9-039:

    Maybe they were "wild" at the time and most parents thought that they were "wildlife"- but not by today's standards

    "with a girl like you" is also "groovy"

    I never get sick of seeing kangaroos do their thing. There are big mobs at the hospital I used to work at (Morisset) but they cull them from time to time as they have been known to attack random people. The big boys anyway.

    This is a brilliant well caught shot. Just love it!

    LOL! I still do. Have you read Gavin Maxwell's "Ring of Bright Water"? If not, you must.

    Ditto to 'Ring of Bright Water'. Otters always seem joyful.

    Agreed, Bill - full of joie de vivre! I'm sticking to coming back as an otter - river, sea, it doesn't matter.
