September 2013: Winding up with a light-hearted moment from sixteen months ago, albeit it on a solemn occasion – Dolly having a good chest scratch before a fallen gum tree.
Well, after six years and 1,871 unique posts, this will be the last post in the Kanga-a-Day series. It was originally set up following the Black Saturday Bushfires in February 2009 as a tribute to Stella and Alan Reid who lost everything in those bush fires, including many of the orphaned kangaroos they had raised. So it is fitting that it wind up with the 6th anniversary of that tragic event. Certainly it has continued a lot longer than expected and has had a loyal following of macropod fans for all that time.
The Kanga-a-Day website will remain online indefinitely as a photographic resource for [non-profit] use in support of kangaroo welfare, as an inspiration to macropod fans, and as a simple tribute to the kanga individuals whose images grace these pages.
Thank you for your support and encouragement over the past six years. It’s been a humbling experience, and of course, a distinct pleasure!
