Roo power

We (well Paul) snapped these pics of a red kangaroo at Willow Springs station in the Flinders Ranges, SA. This one was watching us from fairly near the car and then decided to make a run for it. What I love about these shots is how you can see how the roo uses the power of his tail to flip himself around the face in the opposite direction. Red Kangaroos are tall, powerfully built animals. This one was about 1.5metres tall.
