I hate to see a grown man beg :D

so here are a few to get the ball rolling. Only kangaroos I'm afraid.

These were taken in the southern part of Western Australia, south of Perth.

@@Game Warden Are birds OK in this thread?

 

Australian fur-seal hauling out on my local beach ~ 12/01/12. Many of the seal pups do this from Nov through to Feb, some just for a rest but others do die from exhaustion/starvation. They also attract Great White Sharks.

Eastern Grey Kangaroo ~ 09/06/13. Must be a wild ride for the joey in the pouch. Usually they bound off in the opposite direction but this girl surprised me when I was leaving the local saltmarsh after some bird photography. There is a grumpy male in this mob that I've had to fend off with the tripod on a few occasions.

@@RichB it's easy to create an account, if you don't mind having one ... now I really want to see this video!

Thanks @@Game Warden. The underwater pics were taken with a Canon D20 underwater point and shoot, nothing fancy. It's just such a beautiful spot it doesn't take any skill or fancy equipment to get decent pics. :)

One more Australian wildlife set for me. We spent 2 nights in Alice Springs, in the Red Centre, and were hoping to see Black-footed Rock Wallabies. Our first day we spent primarily around town, but toward dusk we went for a walk around the botanical gardens. We were happily surprised to see some Wallabies (I think at least – as far as I can tell the only other option in the gardens are Euros, which would be bigger) coming down the rocks as the sun set.

The next morning, like good safari-goers, we left our hotel as the sun rose in order to try to get to Simpson’s Gap, in the West MacDonnell National Park. We hoped to be there before any crowds, as morning and evening are best for the wallabies. We were the 2nd car in the parking lot (never saw the other people). We slowly and quietly walked along the rocks where the signs indicated the wallabies were located, but didn’t see any. Finally, just as we were about to give up, one came hopping around a rock. He stopped pretty quickly when he noticed us, but after deciding we weren’t a threat kept eating, while watching us with one eye.

When he decided to leave, we kept walking and came across another one eating.
