Sunday morning...!


Do you remember how excited I was a while back when I was lucky enough to catch a pair of male kangaroos having an early morning spar.. that's them above.  P went off a few days ago in search of some video footage for his music and shot this early morning activity going on amongst a group of kangaroos at Pinnaroo. Watch it here and see how full of energy the young joeys are when they awake, so cute to see them bounding around.. and around! Towards the end of the video I'm sure, like me you will be astounded to see, in action, how tall the males are when they stand on their hind legs and begin sparring. I hope you enjoy.. happy Sunday, take care...

  1. They are something, when they hop around they remind me of our deer bounding off but they stand so tall and seem more intelligent than deer. Just the same I'm glad I don't have to build fence to keep them out of the corn patch. He did a good job with the video! A rainy and foggy Saturday here.

  2. OK, Grace, the video has your photo beat. Both are good. Amazing how it looks like one will trr to antagonize the other and when there is no response starts in on his own. I never realized how tall a kangeroo gets. All we have in Florida is alligators.

  10. I particularly like the shots where everyone in the foreground is quietly grazing and one of the guys keeps zooming past in the background! This video sure shows a pecking order, Grace.

    1. That made me laugh Mark, I have caught them 'at it' but didn't quite know how that would go down on the blog :)

  22. I watched the video. They don't look real. They have vestigial arms and loooonnnnggg legs. Are you sure an animator didn't draw them up?

  23. Boy, you wouldn't want to get into a fight with these guys. It would be a roo awakening!
