Tag Archives: Kangaroos
Saturday was the second anniversary of my Ukrainian grandmother’s death. We dropped by the cemetery, left flowers, and then I looked up and realised we were surrounded by kangaroos! Everywhere we looked, there were more.
I did take a video of them jumping through, but I haven’t uploaded them anywhere yet.
Driving from Canberra to Queanbeyan on Friday afternoon. Those are “watch for kangaroos” signs, but you can’t really see them in this picture.
Just another shot out the car window from Canberra to Queanbeyan. We have a kangaroo plague here, and because they have now installed solar panels in the paddocks the kangaroos used to live in, they are running out of farms to invade! Poor things.
This picture is nothing special, but I was pretty impressed I got a shot of the highway sign from the low back seat of the car!
Here is another shot of the road between Canberra and Queanbeyan, with huge sky, and this time with kangaroo signs. The paddocks on either side of this road are always full of hundreds and hundreds of kangaroos.
No livestock – just kangaroos!
Excuse the blurry picture, taken out of the side of the car this hot afternoon!
We’re just a few minutes from the city centre here, so it gives you a good idea how Canberra got its nickname!
Excuse the truly awful picture. I snapped it from the back of a car on the weekend!
Here – in Canberra and Queanbeyan – it seems we’re getting MORE wildlife every day. We’ve had a kangaroo plague for years and years (to the point it’s not all that unusual to find them in your garden). Surely you’re not a Canberran until at least one of your cars has been destroyed by a kangaroo.
However, now they’re going around adding wombat signs to the tops of the kangaroo signs! This one is on my aunt’s street, so I know it’s a recent addition.
We also seem to have a lot of foxes around for some reason…
