Joey gets a telling off

This cheeky young kangaroo won’t be misbehaving again after what looked like a stern telling off from his long-suffering mum.

In one picture she grabs the joey by the shoulders in what looks like an attempt to shake some sense into him.

In another she towers over the little chap to show him who’s boss – no wonder he’s feeling so jumpy.

Rumours that he had been ‘roo-d to his ma could not be verified.

The intimate scenes between mum and baby were caught on camera by John Eastcott and Yva Momatiuk.

The couple struck it lucky with the fantastic shots while visiting the Yuraygir National Park in New South Wales.
