Wallabies

The morning was grey and drizzly. With a friend of mine we did a walk that has been planned some time ago, hoping that it wouldn't pour on us and damage the cameras. It didn't. We were lucky to spot seven Red-necked Wallabies in a period of less than two hours. There was even a mum with a joey, but they decided to dash into bushes a second before I could take a photo. And as the light was insufficient I had to shoot at ISO 800 all morning. The camera did quite well, having in mind the hard conditions, low shutter speed and drizzle. There are also some nice bird pics, but I'll go through those files later.
