Baby Koala (Phascolarctos cinereus) Close-Up Portrait - Mount Osmond, South Australia by 

In the hilly suburb of Mount Osmond, Adelaide, koalas like this baby make regular appearances in the gum trees lining the area’s well-wooded streets and backyards. This little fella was quite acrobatic, swinging from branches and exploring nearby trees while in the same tree, two adult koalas took it easy, their bottoms wedged firmly into two of the tree’s sturdier forks.

Conservation and creativity are our two strongest passions. Our nature photography extends into online video at NatureScope . We’re also currently producing a documentary film called Cuttlefish Country . All purchases of our work will go directly towards the film’s production. The film is due for release in 2013.

    Wow, thanks for the kind words Denise, Ann, Kevin… I did have to wait patiently for this little fellow to come down from the tallest branch and pose so sweetly for me. Glad it was worth the wait :)
