Moonlit Sanctuary

On the way to Philip Island our coach stopped at a sanctuary that had wallabies and kangaroos as well as dingos and various birds. Two dollars buys a snack sized bag of wallaby food. I was struck by how elegant and gentle these creatures are. At one point, three kangaroos were taking turns eating from my hand. There was never any pushing. The wallabies were shyer and needed some coaxing but once the started nibbling they were locked on! I fed a sweet one who put a paw on my hand. At the end I had a kangaroo hop up to me when I stooped down to take a telephoto shot. What a magical day.
