Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

This young koala had yet to claim his territory, recently separated from his Mum. He was a little sad but also quite tolerant of the people walking past him on the boardwalk, or stopping to take his photograph.

Taken at the Koala conservation park at Phillip Island, July 2009.

    OMG he’s soooo cute. I can’t imagine seeing these on a boardwalk. He looks all cuddly but those claws look like they could rip your face off. :) SZ

  • I’ve heard people have had rather nasty gashes from less than friendly koalas. But I think this little guy wouldn’t have hurt a fly!

    That’s a great shot Anne!

  • They move so slowly, Cathryn. I was able to take a dozen pix to get a good one!!! :o) It’s my fave.

    Just how do you it’s a bloke?

  • there was a sign nearby saying he is an adolescent looking to claim his territory and please don’t harrass him as he’s already quite stressed. LOL. In other words, no, I didn’t “look”!

    My comment’s disappeared!! Or did I say I loved this gorgeous little guy at that other place (probably!!). Anyway…
    I love this photo… such a gorgeous koala!! He’s posed beautifully too :D

  • :o) I think you saw him over at Facebook perhaps. He is so cute, I just wanted to give him a big cuddle. Although as Solar Zorra says, those claws pretty much put the brakes on.

    WOW, excellent capture!! Wonderfully done.

  • Thank you Brendan. Glad you enjoyed looking. He was moving very slowly, I guess all he really wanted to do was find a nice tree and get some sleep. Such a gorgeous creature.
