    2nd and 5th ones are my favorites. We don't have any zoos or wildlife sanctuarys where I am. I have to camp out in the woods for hours waiting. Not sure which I prefer, :D

    Thanks :)

    It good that we do have a few places near here where can see some different creatures:) We do have Kangaroos and koalas wild around here though (in the bush areas around here). You get the warning signs on the side of the road that they are about hardly ever see them though though we did have 2 kangaroos cross the road infront of us one day - luckily going slow so didnt hit them.

    I enjoy your wanderings. These shots are great in that most of them you've obscured wires and man-made whatnots. I really appreciate that. The Gang gang cockatoo is worth it even with the chain link.

    Thanks :) Yeah, unfortunatly the Gang Gangs and the Heron were right up against the back wire so couldn't really do much to reduce that section of wire.

    The Monitor Lizard, the Kookabarra and the Wallaby are tack sharp and nicely taken. I so like the funny sound of the Kookabarras! :D (I have a tape with Australian bird song somewhere, but no tape recorder anywhere in the house any longer, dang! ;))
