This Koala had obviously had enough traveling, so decided to stop and sit in the middle of the road to Lake Elizabeth, in the Great Otway National Park. Fortunately it is not a very busy road and It did move on eventually.

I often stand in awe and admire the beauty of God’s Creation. The colours, textures, tones and shapes,especially the way the light falls and reflects, thus revealing things often overlooked, particularly during the grandeur of a sunrise or sunset, or the spectacle of a rainbow.
I really just want to try and capture and share some of what I see as “The Creator’s Handiwork”.

    He must have sat still for you Phil as you have excellent detail and DOF! (He does look a tad disconsolate poor chap)

    I don’t know the location you named, the land behind him looks free of fire. I have always adored Koalas, but the introduction to Sam who drank from that kind fireman’s hand really did it for me. God bless all Australians, I’m so sorry your country went through so much, such horrible fires.
    This is a wonderful creature. Do they always look so thoughtful and reflective?
