I feel as if my patience has been rewarded – at last the kangaroos came right up the house again.  I was able to photograph the fast growing new joey, leaning out of the pouch and touching the earth.  It won’t be long before it is hopping around with its mother and brother.

Touching Earth 1
The young joey has its head and shoulders out of the pouch. Even the rain didn’t deter it from looking around, smelling the air and eating grass – just like Mum.
Older brother ‘Junior’ still looks young in this photograph. He still has a lot of growing to do.
