I was so fortunite to see this young kangaroo up close, while out shooting for this "Wildlife" challenge.
He stood up on his hind legs, and looked around, while I took photos of him.

A perfect subject for me, re this challenge, as I really wanted to capture some Australian Wildlife, for my portfolio.

I hope you enjoy my image, called "Joey", as that is what we call our baby and young Kangaroos, here in Australia.

Sure, he's goofy looking enough, but I still don't think that's Joey. :P

Nice shot and highly respectable score in a very tough competition!

Nicely composed and cropped. The fur on the chest looks sort of like an oil painting.

over-saturated & sharpened in my opinion, but otherwise a very cute roo.

a bit oversharpened or too much contrast. Great subject though.

That's beautiful, I love the clarity of the subject, the bokeh background, the vivid colours, even the 1000 yard stare in the eyes of the joey! 10 for sure, good to see a good aussie shot.
