Let me start off by saying that I had a tough time deciding between TE and TN. I guess I decided that the Kangaroo is such a symbol of Australia that I would need to post them as soon as I could.
This is obviously a Kangaroo mom and her Joey. The Joey seems to be getting a bit large for the pouch, but Mom didn't seem to mind. (those are the Joey's legs sticking out above his head)
I know the image is quite noisy, and that's because it was dusk and I was shooting at ISO 3200 hand held with a slow lens :( . But I put it through Noise Ninja once and didn't like the result (too 'dreamy').
In photoshop I did a USM and re size and a small crop.

Hehe, beautiful capture. The face of mom says all - yes, I know that my son is big, but I love him so much ;).

I'm sorry I'm so slow responding to this great photo: The framing is perfect and so is the sharpness, especially of Mom's eyes.
