Kangaroo Conservation Center

Red Kangaroo
This weekend we headed up to the Kangaroo Conservation Center in Dawsonville, Georgia to see the Mob. Yeah, you read correctly the mob. Well, not the mob as in bad dudes but the Kangaroo Mobs. The weather was nice and the drive was short, only 45 minutes. The center itself was not a bad deal, although the cost was a bit high for what you get. The people were friendly and the Kangaroos were out sun bathing and the whitetail deer were active. Overall the attractions were in good order.

However, the photo opportunity was not as good as I had thought it would be. I really did not a get a good shot of the kangaroos. Most shots were long and I didn't have a 400mm lens. (The photo on the page here was blown up to 175 percent.) A disappointment for me. But the billobong center had a lot of photo opportunities. The billobong center had the birds, reptiles and lost kids. Just kidding about the kids.
If you plan to visit and want some good kangaroo photos I suggest at least a 300 - 400 mm lens. Oh yeah, eat before you go.
