This is something special! Never before have I ever seen this - a joey opening its mother's pouch and drinking from the distended nipple, whilst outside the pouch.

Thank you, Aubrey. You won't see many images like this, for though I have been around roos a fair bit, this was a special moment for me! Thanks too for your general affirmation.

Though at this moment you have only 25 pics in your folio, I am most impressed by your eye for photography. I can say that I like all of the images you have selected to upload. Your Irish ones are great, and the Egyptian ones very special. I will comment on some of them individually, but the 'boats' one is registered in my mind!

For that reason I have added your gallery into my favourites, so that periodically I can watch your uploads and learn from you.

My very best wishes for more great images from your hand and eye.
