Communications Safety Training

We live in a pretty cool place to have these guys in the yard and sometimes hopping down the street! Not literally cool at the moment though - heatwave! 🌑🌑🌑 These 3 were using the shade of the fence around our build in the awful heat today. .

Contain Yourself

Slashie is intrigued but he doesn't chase them. We'd never let that happen anyway. We love having these guys hang around. We see them a few times a week at least. Sometimes you see them hopping down the street! πŸ˜†. Today they were making the most of the shade of the site fencing in this crazy hot weather. .

The Falcor Story

Just when I thought it was time to cuddle into my comfy fleece/cotton/branch nest, mom comes in with a #pecan. She says it's a win-win because cracking the #shell is good for my teeth. I'll take it!

β€œJuicy Juicy Green Grass”

I captured this Eastern Grey doe (Wambuwuny*) in the middle of her supper, chowing down on some green grass. Dry grass is difficult for them to digest, they prefer to eat young green shoots high in protein. This was captured in August when green grass was in abundance.

Roos are herbivores, eating a range of plants, favouring grasses. All have a chambered stomach similar to cattle and sheep, meaning they regurgitate their food and re-chew it in order for it to be fully digested. Sometimes I see them do this by tilting their head back to a vertical position and making odd noises, it was a rather bizarre behaviour to witness the first time.

Roos are extremely adaptable, which is why they are so successful in the harsh environments of Oz. It is the middle of summer here and in my area of rural south-east NSW, the only green grass is that cultivated by us. The seasonal environments, determine the geographical behaviour of roos, which generally puts them in the class of a nomad rather than territorial, however in the areas that I frequent, I find they generally stick to the same areas, due to lack of habitat. For example last night I climbed a hill where I know a mob of roos usually reside, however they were nowhere to be seen. This was no surprise to me as I know in these drier months they are forced to venture into the areas below and compete with other mobs for the nitrogen rich grass of a local golf course. They don’t need to drink very often, getting their hydration from grasses, however with less grass this time of year you will see them at watering holes more often.

Knowing the habits of my subject matter makes all the difference when setting out to photograph them & makes them far more interesting to observe. I believe we can all still learn a lot from animals, particularly from their adaptability to their surrounds, if all humans could make regular changes in habits such as consuming local seasonal produce, then we would greatly decrease our carbon footprint. Becoming more resourceful & less of a consumer is always a goal of mine, there is a good docco on Netflix that I high recommend called β€œMinimalism”. *Wiradjuri language

This little boy came into care yesterday, still warm and hydrated. He is so tiny fitting only in the palm of my hand. It shows the development of marsupials and how amazing they are! This is a little eastern grey kangaroo and feeding well so we decided to give him a chance πŸ’™ send him lots of love.

Excuse the hiatus, everyone! Not much has changed over here except I just keep getting cuter and cuter! I was good today, so mom is letting me crack open this nice bedtime #pecan. I'm glad she chose my good side for the picture. ..
