Kangaroos in the Dry Todd River Bed

After all of this mornings excitement, I decided to go for a walk down to the Todd River in Alice Springs. The result was finding some local kangaroos.

These would probably be grey kangaroos. However, it was unusual to find them hanging out underneath a very interesting type of tree. One that uses forked shaped leaves. Probably adding to the sense of the exotic nature of the landscape out here. However, there was plenty of grass and plants growing in the area.

This smaller grey kangaroo was also carrying a joey, and will soon be a mom.Her pouch is expanding and the feet of the joey are starting to stick out the bottom of the pouch. It makes me in particular wonder if the joey's feet will get cold?

After all of the excitement of ANZAC day this morning it was nice to get back to nature and photograph some new subjects in a natural setting.

You've told us a very interesting story. I started wondering, too, if the Roo's feet get cold at nights. Its Mom is a charming lady with long eyelashes. She doesn't see or feel you, so we can watch her peacefully do her daily round.
