Robert has send in this lovely snap with the following note:

Here are some snaps of visitors we get from time to time in Summer when it hasn’t rained for a fair while.

They run out of food on Tuggeranong Hill and come done to our place in Conder Heights.
If you’re quiet, you can often hear them (and then see them) munching the grass outside the bedroom window.

Of course, this occurred more often in the days we could maintain a lush, juicy lawn.

What you talkin’ about Willis?

What’s that skippy? You want royalties from pictures posted of you from interwebs?

Ummm… guys?

If you come to the O’Connor ridge or Lyneham ridge, you will be surrounded by 20+ of these lovely creatures.

You go for a quiet walk in the sun, and before you know it you are surrounded. Not that they’ll attack, but it’s still a bit unnerving and eerie.

A roo flying through the ridge at 80km/h is an awesome sight!

I saw a couple recently but a car went past and spooked them before I managed to get a decent pic.

It’s a very large and evil mouse.

He looks hungry and sad, you should shoot him.

Needs a photoshopped fox hair so the Gubbmint can use it in their nest Canberra Tourism push.
