There were hundreds of kangaroos to be seen in this area, particularly early morning (when this was taken) and even more so at dusk.
Thanks for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it :-)
I will always try to reciprocate with a visit back to your stream.

A tiny treasure rising out of the emptiness of the southern Pacific Ocean, Lord Howe Island is one of the world’s last truly unspoiled Island destinations. Just 11 km long and 2 km wide, two thirds of its land mass is covered by Banyan, Pandanus and native Kentia Palm forests, its beaches are safe, pristine and tranquil, while the sunsets are spectacular.
Getting lonely, getting old
Can you feel me?
Hey you, standing in the aisles
With itchy feet and fading smiles
Can you feel me?
Hey you, dont help them to bury the light
Don't give in without a fight.
The early morning sunlight lit up this road and morning mist near Hahndorf, Adelaide Hills, South Australia.
LIGHT BOX OR FULL SCREEN IS BEST.
Last night's dusk through to sunset was fairly spectacular. Here is my capture. These buildings are all on the river, but some of the action was also in the sky when the earth was rising (i.e. sun going down).
Thanks for stopping by. Appreciate your comments.

Western Australia - Tom Price - Gumtrees before thunderstorm
Nikon F3 / Kodachrome
Thanks for viewing my photos.
Have a nice weekend.
I got to see my first kangaroos in the wild ... there are signs posted almost everywhere on the side of the road warning us that it's kangaroo crossings ... never saw a one ... and going up this dirt road on the way to Seal Rocks to go up to Sugarloaf lighthouse .... Alas ... I spotted 3 sitting in a field ... so lush with all the rains .. I was far and didn't want to scare them so this is all I could get ... but what a thrill it was .....
By the way ... thanks for all the comments and Flickr mail my friends ... so sorry if I worried some of you it just couldn't be helped .... I shall do my best to stick around a bit more ...... love ya's all ...
here is the required soundtrack to this image... must be played loud...
merry xmas to all my friends on flickr...
Australian native Kangaroo Paw (Anigozanthos 'Bush Ranger')
Australia Day, January 26, is the biggest day of celebration in the country and is observed as a public holiday. We all come together as a nation to celebrate what's great about Australia. A nation of differences from different nations and backgrounds living together as we learn from each other and grow together.
Northern Territory - Uluru/Ayers Rock
Nikon F3 / Kodachrome 64
Uluru is one of Australia's most recognisable natural landmarks. The sandstone formation stands 348 m high, rising 863 m above sea level with most of its bulk lying underground, and has a total circumference of 9.4 km. Both Uluru and the nearby Kata Tjuta formation have great cultural significance for the Aṉangu people, the traditional inhabitants of the area, who lead walking tours to inform visitors about the local flora and fauna, bush food and the Aboriginal dreamtime stories of the area.
Uluru is notable for appearing to change colour at different times of the day and year, most notably when it glows red at dawn and sunset.
Uluru is sacred to the Pitjantjatjara Anangu, the Aboriginal people of the area. The area around the formation is home to an abundance of springs, waterholes, rock caves and ancient paintings. Uluru is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Uluru and Kata Tjuta, also known as the Olgas, are the two major features of the Uluṟu-Kata Tjuṯa National Park.
