A bit of this and that...with added frangipani.

Nature Photography: Willoughby Wallaby Poo

When I first moved to Australia, I scoffed at my Canadian friends who thought that, in Australia, kangaroos hopped down the urban city streets. There were certainly no kangaroos in inner-city Sydney. To me, that was like saying that all Canadians live in igloos.

Little did I know. When I moved to Cairns, I learned that encounters with marsupials on the suburban streets were a distinct possibility. A few years ago, when I worked nights at the supermarket, I came across one on my very own street, and the other day, we spotted a group of them making their way across the school oval. Guess I'd better brush up on my igloo-making skills.

The boys' soccer training grounds are next to a field where the wallabies graze. The close proximity to these furry creatures means that the young soccer players have to pick their way through wallaby droppings as they practise their dribbling, juggling and turns. 

It's a good thing they're cute.
