A Kangaroo on Guard

The Kangaroo is a symbol of Australia and such an amazing and fascinating creature. On a visit to Australia I ended up in a Kangaroo Park in Perth. I had been told stories of some Kangaroos being quite fierce and aggressive to humans so I was wary but the ones I came across were used to human contact. I found it difficult to get an good image of a kangaroo when close as they kept bouncing away, so I decided to stay back a bit with my 75-300mm lens and try and capture one from a distance. The image captures the strong sense and alertness a Kangaroo has, always on guard and being observant.
