Wildlife has blooper moments

The other day as i ventured up from the dam after spending a fun time watching Wanda and her wee Buttons i came across some roos that had been camping in our lower paddock.

Now it can be hard to see them when they camp as they like to do so amongst the rushes.

More than once i have come across one and had the beejeebers scared out of me.

When you crest a hill and a big lad over 6 foot tall and all chest puffed and arms flexed is there it is quite a sight to see.

I defer to their right to be there and hope for the best πŸ™‚

Well back to my trek up to the house..so i spot the roos…and the poor things must have been in a real daydream as i scared them a bit..i do not like to scare them so as i looked up i see roos going in all directions..i turned the camera on and shot some pictures..

I thought i saw what looked like a roo tumble over the reeds..damn..i hate that..i mean i know these guys are tough and all but i still hate to see them fall..

When i got back home i had got dinner sorted and mucked around a bit..when i finally got my sd card in the computer i went looking through all the shots of the wallabies..

Ok i come to the Blooper moment..what i saw next in my images were these shots..

Oh my..mid air collision of roos..both were fine after as i saw all roos hop off and then stand as a mob and watch me!

I guess sometimes even the wildlife is a tad uncoordinated and does not pay attention πŸ™‚

Have a super weekend all πŸ™‚

Cheers Fozziemum


Notice that there is a roo behind the rushes on the left..



Now the roo on the left takes off



Now rabbit up top left is taking off,roos are both in flight and not looking at each other


And the moment both roos collide!


Dust kicked up and over they go!


Calm restored..

  1. Awww shame Bev. Yes, things like that happens, even with them and just like you I also don’t like scaring the Vervets when they come and visit but now and then they are skittish, especially if they’ve been to a house where people chased them away. Makes me sad that these gorgeous animals had to learn to fear humans because of other people who just want to kill them. These are amazing shots darling. Thanks for sharing these beauties. You know I love them! πŸ˜€ β™₯

    • It is sad but in a way i prefer they be wary..too many trusting ones get hurt..people can be awful..but they were fine and luckily not hurt..i am sure they tumble often when i am not around πŸ™‚ big hugs and love Bev xx

      • I totally agree with you sweets. They can’t trust just anyone. Oh, they are tough little cookies and wouldn’t have been hurt. You should see how rough the Vervets play and fall out of the trees or bump into each other. Quite a treat to see that. I am just not as fast as you to capture that action. πŸ˜†

  2. Whoopsie – a mid-air collision! Well, when you’re in a panic you don’t necessarily notice what’s around you…..you just GO FOR IT……..and these two obviously tried to do just that……great shots.

    • Thankyou Pam :)..yes they sure did bang hard into each other but i bet it happens alot…just in private without me to show them at their less elegant moments πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Hugs and love Bev xx


  3. I wonder why we always assume that animals are totally coordinated and aware of their surroundings? Ray has tripped over mystery (we couldn’t see anything) objects; has jumped up onto a large rock…. and fallen off, and has jumped into a ravine! Agility, logic and common sense are not always apparent. I guess your roos are no different! πŸ™‚

    • I know Colin..i have seen them trip and they actually look embarassed! Forrest has tripped so has Doc..and tonight one of the girls crawled into a catbed which then rolled onto the couch causing another of the girls to leap up as it continued on to the floor..we all i guess have an element of slapstick comedy to our bodies πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

  4. Bev…not your fault, was the rabbits !!!! πŸ™‚

    while a “clumsy” feeling for the roos, a once in a life time… will probably never capture again…. shots for you…these ARE awesum shots ~

    I especially like the last, because the roos seem to be saying….they meant to do that !!

    hope all is well with you, phil and the crew; hugs and lovez to all β™₯β™₯β™₯

  6. Beautiful shots; beautiful subject matter. Sadly I don’t see the wildlife anymore. I hear them sometimes when I am out with the dogs at nighttime, but they are generally beyond the fence-line.


    • It is a good size mob! I wonder too…i did not even see it until i loaded my pics on the computer..they move so fast and i just keep shooting..they looked a tad embarrassed after but not hurt πŸ™‚ hugs Fozziemum x


All your words are special so thankyou for leaving them
