Thanks John. Hard to believe such pretty creatures are harbourers of hydatids, but there you have it: they're full of worms!
Not all they harbour either, Melanie. Back in my (extreme) youth, I used to shoot and skin roos. No way would I eat kangaroo meat! Host to just about every parasite known.

Diabolical breeding system, and with access to year round feed and water from an estimated million miles of bore drains, their numbers are in plague proportions everywhere except in urban areas, where many wallabies have their habitat.

My first time with buffalo a couple hours ago! On antelope island at that. Tons to get through, but here’s an early favorite. SOOC -

I found myself on an 70 mile stretch of unpaved Nevada desert road today (thanks google), and came across some wild horses (thanks google).

If I din't run into any elks during last visit to the RMNP it would be fairly rare. Anyhow, these might not be that of good interest to many since I took the images about 2 x football field length:). But I thought I share as #2 and #3 I took them using HHHR mode and found to be useable at 100% crop by my standards :).

I perhaps clipped the shadow on#3, but it wouldn't have good details from that distance anyhow. Also there is a slight artifact at the stack rack due to animal movement. The haze was a big factor, but it seems DXO PL3 can clear that up fairly decent.

All taken handheld with EM1 III + Oly 300mm F4 + TC1.4.

Well, I had my 60mm macro lens on when I spotted this lovely, petite grey kangaroo with her joey, but I took what I could get with it. She tolerated our presence for a few minutes - I even played her a little tune on my harmonica! - before bounding away.

My next kangaroo incident happened on a sandy track in state forest; this one was quite curious, while its mate bolted. Shot at the long end, and looking pretty unrefined.

I was excited to run into Elks in their natural habitat. A few things to do better is not to forget to grab my second body with a mid range tele-lens (40-150mm) and ask my wife for more time (or better time of the day to go look for them :). They were about over the length of football field from where I parked so I had to run across get close enough.

Anyhow, I am happy with the outcomes under harsh light condition. All taken with EM1 III + Olympus 300mm f4 + TC14.

It looks as if he was smiling!

This one can stay close for now.
