      1. I have absolutely no idea, but when I saw them in the wild I squealed first with excitement at seeing them, and then again seconds later when I realised they ate grass. I think I even said to myself at the time, well what do you think they ate!! I can be very blonde sometimes πŸ˜‰

  1. Hihi — I suggested in my post that an Australian blogger (not thinking of YOU, of course not!!) could come up with photos of a mob of kangaroos, and while I was putting my post together you already obliged. Well done! I love English collective nouns for animals.

      1. I’m glad you did. Not just for sharing your experience but confirming the use of this particular collective noun (some seem really far fetched and possibly only exist because their life started out in a phantasy list).

      1. Oh yes they are rather flighty. The ones that hang around more often will not jump away when first sight me. That is a good analogy Mason πŸ™‚

      2. I live in rural Norfolk in the UK. Lucy dog and I see fallow deer fairly often. Those that know us will stop and stare fir a few moments. The others bound away like rockets lol

        How cool to have wallabies at home though. Marsupials are such cool creatures.

  2. I think I’d just sit in your garden all day, what with the wallabies, the birds, and the other wildlife you show us occasionally. My own garden seems bleak by comparison.

  3. On our holiday recently, Our Girl and I went for a morning walk. In the paddock next to our cottage sat a kangaroo, watching us. I was terrified. Stopped on the spot, grabbed Sophie’s arm and slowly walked in the other direction. I actually wanted to go back inside, but she couldn’t see the problem. All I kept thinking about was the woman who was recently out for a jog and a kangaroo attacked her, followed her into a stranger’s home where she went for safety. Something to do with her scent, I think. Gaaaah!! That and the spider that sat on the water tank next to our house kept me vigilant and anxious the whole time. And…once back home, unpacking the car, I found a huge spider (not the same one as the water tank, believe me, I checked his position as we departed) in our car! Oooooeemgeeeee! Not a country girl πŸ™‚

    1. It was a wise move to avoid the Kangaroo, they can be unpredictable and I do know people who have been injured by Roos. Good idea to watch sneaky Huntsman Spiders, I hope you found a nice place outside for the spider. By huge I guess you mean 10cent piece size πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      1. Well. the spider was an issue that almost ended in a divorce. Hubster just swept it out of the car and refused to kill it (they have to die once I’ve seen them. I’m sorry. But I am terrified.) We all watched in run under the car, I’m shouting, ‘Kill it. It will only crawl back inside the car!’ He refused to kill it, saying it was outside, and wouldn’t be able to get back in the car.Hmmmm. very tense moments!! πŸ™‚

      2. Once on the ground it would have gone back to nature. Saddens me to think of a helpless spider being bumped off. Aversion Therapy may be they only way to save you Linda πŸ™‚
