Eastern Grey Kangaroo Joey: Jumping on Mum

As promised in my previous kangaroo post, here are the photographs of the Eastern Grey Kangaroo joey – delayed slightly while I was hunting for Sun Orchids.

This young joey still spends most of the day in its mother’s pouch.  So, when the joey climbs out for five minutes of exercise, it is still experiencing the exuberance of being able to run and jump!  Mum is a wonderful thing to bounce off, and her ears are just fascinating!

No more explanation is necessary, I think, so enjoy the photographs!
