Red Kangaroo - Macropus rufus

Walking about in the golden hour before sunset, the Kangaroos are most active. Making for some good action shots if you can catch them jumping about.

Here we have an interesting photograph. As soon as he stopped he had even light on him; however, he stopped right in front of a tree. Making him look like he has a very interesting hairstyle. However, it did reveal good texture on his coat.

This male has huge muscles that let him get about, and the photograph reveals that he is almost as tall as me when standing. It makes you wonder what he is thinking when he looks straight at you?

Yes, it's a wonderful living being.

Would also like to say that the sunlight zones in the photograph add to the magic of the scene. You've posted a superb image.
