Animal stories

We got to see some amazing wildlife on our little adventure…. some that you’d very rarely get to see actually in the wild. Remember, we weren’t in a nature park, or a safari park or anything. These animals were totally wild, and right near us.

First is a friendly Echidna. We found him at Loch Ard gorge, just off the path. He was hiding in some bushes, but decided that it was time to move on, and off he went. He was so close that we could have reached over the wall of the path and touched him.
WOW!!

Next is the most amazing one of the bunch. This friendly Koala got busted crossing the path and climbing up a tree. He figured that we weren’t going to go away, so he just sat and stared at us, letting us take all the photos that we wanted. Again, he was close enough to touch and perfectly at eye level. This was the most awesome experience. We were blown away for a good 10 minutes afterward. Suddenly, not so excited about all the furry balls way up above us in the trees…
This was at Tower Hill – well worth the visit.

Also at Tower Hill some very cheeky, and not so friendly, Emus. They were scrounging for food at the picnic area, so they didn’t mind getting their photo taken. There were 2 of them, had a perfect distract and sneak in approach by splitting up.

Still more to come tomorrow!

Meanwhile, make sure you check out Scrapbook-bytes.com. They currently have an AMAZING free download on their home page. Well worth the 30 minutes or so.

Now, I really need to get on with editing the other 300 odd photos….. lol

Night!
