OUR VISITOR - November 24th, 2011

Seriously.. there's no a cuter animal on this planet than the Australian Koala! And lucky us are currently being visited by one in our front yard!! What a lovely surprise - we don't often see these up close around here, they do of course live all through the bushland along the Murray River which is maybe 2km from where I live... but there's plenty of Eucalyptus trees along the way :)

Anyways, it's been years since I saw one up close, and the first time for the kids (apart from seeing them in the Zoo's)... last time I saw one was up a small tree along a beach we were swimming at, and that was years ago! Usually we only ever see them on the side of the road :(

this is after it moved down the tree.. into the shade

Anyways... here's our super cute Aussie Native... makes me so proud to be an Aussie - cause seriously, there really is nothing cuter!!

It just watched us all and seemed really interested in what was going on.. wide awake!

how cute! this is so cool, where i live you would see wild deer or elk, maybe a fox, or racoons. its fun to see what would be the equivalent of that in Australia. x

Oh Loz,I'm sooo jealous how cute is he,and you have him in your yard....All we have are birds,an occasional fox and a badger,but they only come out at night...no where near as cute as your little Koala....Hope your well???...
