illustRation fRiday - Leap

(leaping towards home)

From the series : The way seasons travel... 

This is Winter and after spending some time in Australia is time for the kangarugas to take him home.

Kangarugas - the way my husband refers to Kangaroos when he wants to speak spanish, the actual word is CANGUROS  (can-goo-ros).
