I went with a group on a photowalk at Lysterfield last Saturday and we came across, a couple of times, two big old boy eastern grey kangaroos. One member obviously hadn’t been that close to a kangaroo before and was concerned for their safety. I explained that as long as the kangaroo didn’t feel cornered and could see ways to move away from us, then we weren’t in danger. We just needed to give them space and time to make their decision to move away if they felt we were too close. In the meantime we were able to get some decent shots. For those of you keen to get close shots please be aware I was using a super zoom lens so the kangaroo looks closer than what it actually is and yes, I was a safe distance from it.

One shot is taken in the bushland and another on the beach at the park.
