KANGAROO IN SPRING

KANGAROO, MACROPUS SP.

This male kangaroo in Kaiserstuhl Conservation Park was overlooking his harem ready to defend against the advances of other males. His amorous and defensive preoccupations allowed me to quietly approach and capture this shot. The late afternoon light set the scene with nice backlight, illuminating insects on the wing.
