Sepia Saturday, 335 18/06/2016 Koala in my garden;



Well here we are again - yawnnnnn - it's Sepia Saturday time....




A Koala in my garden not yawning but trying to rest in a palm tree. It must not have been very comfortable as it left the palm...



...and tried  a Paperbark, which was also not to its liking. 


It walked quite fast to the back garden, scrambled over the fence onto my neighbour's frangipani tree,



where it looked triumphantly at me and later settled back for another snooze

  1. So koalas will settle in trees even though they may not eat the leaves, as they don't eat frangipani flowers or leaves, do they? Not that that frangipani looks like it has any of either at that moment anyway. Nice photos!

    1. Jo, I think they prefer the gums, as they have their special diet. My neighbour has a really huge Eucalyptus tree right at our boundary, which they use also. Koalas roam, especially at their mating time I can hear them at night, they make a lot of noise! There is bush around here and many creatures visit the garden.

    1. Marilyn, at the moment Bandicoots snuffle around at night and make everywhere holes in the mulch as they are looking for food. Most of the Australian wildlife is nocturnal.

  5. I am very impressed at how many people this Sepia weekend have personal photos of Koalas that they are acquainted with on a first name basis! I had no idea they were so common in Australia. My dog is obsessed with the squirrels who frequent our bird feeder. I don't know what she would do if there was a Koala in our garden.

  6. They look so cute and cuddly unlike our deer - especially the bold bucks, skunks, mountain lions, and bears - all of which I've seen close enough, thank you very much! Wild turkeys aren't very cuddly, either. Koalas would be fun to see around here, but the closest we can come to that, as Mike mentioned, are squirrels. Oh well.

  7. I have enjoyed the Sepians' first-hand photos and experiences with koalas. Your yard is so exotic.
