Eastern Gray Kangaroos, Australia

This Month in Photo of the Day: Animal Pictures

These are wild eastern gray kangaroos shot on the west coast of Australia. I was going for a walk in the bush and unfortunately scared them off. They fled away in a hurry toward the native forest. These are part of Roxie's crew, a kangaroo that was once like a domestic pet at Dellis's bush stay in Soulhaven.
