EASTERN GREY KANGAROO, MACROPUS GIGANTEUS

I found this female eastern grey kangaroo high in the Australian backcountry during one of the biggest storms of the season. The snow was so deep her fur was covered in ice. We both sheltered behind the snow gum, understanding that the wind was scarier than either of us.
