who is a pretty one, then?

A magical moment when I was gifted with the precious experience of observing this lovely creature taking the early morning sun on our front lawn.

It was no more than 10 metres from the house. The fence is the edge of Augie Dog’s patch which adjoins the patio. The wallaby looks a little further away that it was as it is just over the drop of the hill upon which our house sits. It was just a perfect moment in paradise.

This is an official photo from the Queensland Museum that gives a clearer picture. More facts, clear here.

No doubt when it is feasting on our vegetable patch in a couple of weeks I won’t think so highly of it, but for now, it was my jewel in the crown for the day.
