Sunday morning, eating breakfast I saw something disappearing very very fast up a palm tree. Billy was rummaging around, luckily he leaves the animals alone. When he was a puppy he took small lizards in his mouth but let them unharmed out again. This behaviour is unusual with a Jack Russel. But he has always been an unusual fellow.
Anyway, I went and had a look, I thought it was a Pheasant, as they always stick around to look for nests with baby birds. When I looked up I saw a Koala sitting on a palm leaf and holding on to the next.
At around lunchtime I returned to the palm tree but the Koala had disappeared.
A little later I saw it going up a paperbark, but did not feel comfortable and left...
walked all the way to the end of the garden and quickly climbed a frangipane tree, which gave me an opportunity to snap a few photos.
It looked at me and then decided...
to climb over the fence into my neighbours garden, where it very fast climbed up a very high gum tree and disappeared high up in the branches. Generally they live there and feed on the leaves. But it was nice to see this furry visitor. Usually they are very high up and it is hard to see them as they blend so well with the colours of the gum trees.
