Koala on the Move

by Kristi Hines · Australia

Further down the Great Ocean Road, we decided to take a detour towards the Camp Otway Lightstation. We didn’t make it all the way down to it because we noticed a bunch of people standing under a tree. We pulled off the road, grabbed our cameras, and found out what the fuss was about – there were koalas in the trees.

Ironically, we took a hike the day before to see koalas in “Koala Country” at Anakie Gorge and saw only one. After driving just a bit down this road, we ended up seeing around 11. This is one of them, holding on to its favorite spot on the branch.

Phenomenal shot. You can see his eyes so clearly. Love the detail.

Thanks. They were hard to get a clear shot of sometimes because of the lighting since they were hiding in the leaves, but this one was perfect because he was looking up at the sun. 🙂
