Baby koala 2

Posted by
: Helen : (Helen is photographing in, Australia) on 25 February 2015 in Animal & Insect.

This is a wild koala. It is a juvenile that lives in liberty in the eucalytus forest on the coastal strip on the Mornington Peninsula.

As much as koalas look cute and cuddly, their claws are something else! You can see how he grips on to the tree in this photo.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III 1/200 second F/4.0 ISO 200 200 mm

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!

Having had a mere squirrel scamper up a bare leg, I can well imagine what those claws would be like !
