A cute sleeping kangaroo in Lone Pine Koala Sactuary near Brisbane, Australia. She/he was sleeping, ignored me and let me shot whatever the way I liked. I jumped over her/his body in order to find the best angle, and even put a tiny stone on her/his tummy in the hope that Her/he would open his/her eyes slightly. But nothing bothered her/him, and she/he kept sleeping all the time during my photographing.

This is a fun shot. He looks a bit like he's smiling. The sun caused a pretty strong shadow to the left of the Kangaroo that I find a bit distracting, but overall it's a good picture. This would be a good one for TrekNature as well.
Thanks for Sharing :)

Great shot, very cute! But as an Australian (who's seen plenty like this, on the side of the road...) I have to ask: is it actually alive? :)
Nice picture - thanks for sharing!

I didn't know kangaroos slept like this...

technically there could be minor improvements (sharpness for example), but it is such a cute view, I didn't know they slept on their backs, he is so relaxed, and he seems like he is smiling. Very trusting ! Well seen, thank you for sharing this tender moment.

Cute beastie. From a technical viewpoint the photo would have profited from a lightening of the shadows, particularly on the left of the animal's head. This could have been accomplished with a white reflector or by use of the flash.

Olá XK Ke,
how did you manage to get so close? He must have been in a deep sleep state :D.
He's got a funny facial expression.
Thanks for sharing,

The capture is quite funny and cute at the same time. An innocent smile on the face makes this photo perfect.
