We had some visitors this morning... most were hiding behind trees so I couldn't get more than a tail shot, but one was kind enough to let me take her photo.









It was a small family group with what looked to be one male, three females and one joey on the ground.



Pretty Faced Wallabies are a regular visitor, I just don't usually think to take a photo. I must try to get photos of some of our other wildlife (mostly just birds of different varieties).

We are lucky enough to be on acreage, surrounded by acreage and with an Environmental reserve at the end of the street, so we have a lot of wildlife roaming around the property.

The are! In general wallabies have much prettier faces than kangaroos, but Pretty Faced Wallabies are one of my favourites.

I am trying to get in the habit of taking the camera with me more... I had a nice roam around early this morning and took some photos around the house yard.

It's nice to know that they are happily roaming around only a 10 minute drive from 'civilisation'.

You certainly have exotic fauna in Oz.

LOL The funny thing is, that while I wouldn't say they are commonplace or anything (because most people I know--me included--are still excited to see any of our wild animals wandering through the property), but to us they are just wallabies... not as exciting as a squirrel or an otter or one of the many animals found in Europe and America that we never see.

Yup, it all depends on what is commonplace where you live. I had friends visiting us from NYC. We took them to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, which has a special breed of squirrel called a Kaibob squirrel, which is black with a luxuriant gray and white tail. http://www.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://www.arizonagourds.com/GC_Kaibab_Squirrel.jpg&imgrefurl=http://sguforums.com/index.php%3Ftopic%3D27040.15&h=284&w=446&sz=90&tbnid=TmjdJ76BcDtc9M:&tbnh=90&tbnw=141&prev=/search%3Fq%3Dkaibab%2Bsquirrel%26tbm%3Disch%26tbo%3Du&zoom=1&q=kaibab+squirrel&docid=54FV4JAY_LXfzM&sa=X&ei=lFeWTuDOD630sQLZzPzeBA&ved=0CEMQ9QEwBA

Glad you enjoyed them! I am trying to remember to reach for the camera more often.
