THE SCRATCH

WESTERM GREY KANGAROO

MACROPUS FULIGINOSUS

I love watching young kangaroos. This little fellow, a western grey (Macropus fuliginosus), was having a scratch seemingly unconcerned by my presence. The backlight captures the fur and dust as it floats off into the muted colours of the wandoo bushland.
