Either this is a composite image, or that Park has some incredibly friendly 'roos. Of course, your title suggests otherwise. Possessive creatures, aren't they?
Anyway, Debbie, this is a striking scene with lovely morning colors and excellent composition. Very well done! #1649139

Debbie Bray February 08, 2016

Thank you Mary. No, its not a composite. :). Each morning, about a dozen roos hop down to the beach at dawn. Even though they are skittish animals, they can get used to people in close proximity. If you move too fast or make a loud noise, they're gone! I was actually sitting on the sand with m tripod, when this one came my way, the young British couple came over slowly to get a better look. #11432671
