A very exciting moment yesterday. This is the first koala I have seen on my property in the 10 years of living here. I’ve known they are around this area and I have many of the right trees for them but they are extremely hard to see and generally 50′ or 70′ above the ground. This one started about 30′ up and when it heard me beneath climbed much higher.
Last shot of the day, just as we were packing up to leave this koala came into the clearing where we were and then started running across in front of us to get to the other side of the area. I captured a series of shots of this but all were out of focus 😦 These are the best I managed at the time. Normally koalas sit in the fork of a tree eating and sleeping. Very easy to take photos of there, when on the ground they can move very fast indeed.
