Weekly Photo Challenge: Symbol

I’m a little late in getting my challenge response in this week to “Symbol”.  I chose the well known national animal and icon for Australia – the Kangaroo.  When we went there, one of my first goals was to find a kangaroo that I could photograph.  This “Roo” was near the town of Cairns, one of the gateways to the Great Barrier Reef.  I actually took this photo in someone’s back yard as this mom and offspring were grazing.  One glance at this iconic creature and you already know what country you’re in – a symbol through and through…..

  1. Can’t believe they were in someone’s back yard. What a treat.

    • Colline – it was fun to watch them just hop around and eat mangos!

  2. Hard to imagine hopping around with that extra weight inside your pouch. 🙂
