ID Animals

Challenge #11 in the The natural world around you series. Hosted by Ohmyhi.
Challenge has finished
As in challenges before, I enjoyed sharing photos of ID'ed animals to help people see what animals can be found where. In this challenge I am wanting the focus to be entirely focused on photos that could be used in books to ID animals. The idea is to get at least a full body and side view of an animal. The voting will be based on the best ID able animal. For example if someone photographs a Great Blue Heron and it is a full body photo with a clear focus and easy to tell photo, that will be able to be used to ID a species. You may put multiple imagines from different angles (ventral, dorsal, caudal, cranial) into a collage of photos. But each photo must be of a different view of the species photographed. I.E. for birding it is nice to have a ventral (bottom) dorsal (top), cranial (face, front) and caudal (tail, back) to help be able to ID the animal fully in the field. If you are interested in furthering your ID'ing skills, NatureShare.come is a great place to check out.

Australian Kangaroos

37th place
A mob of Red Kangaroos (Macropus Rufus) gather in the late afternoon to graze. The male kangaroos are a red/brown colour, while the females are blue/grey. If you look closely, the female at the far right of the picture has a joey poking its head out of her pouch. These are very shy, wild animals, and I was unable to get any closer to them without them bounding away.
