Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Pets

This week have must put forward a pet.

Since I don’t have a pet of my own and just recently posted some pics of my beautiful niece Buffy (the Maltese) already… I got to thinking of something more national – an Australian “pet”. Something soft and cuddly and one that we would all like to have as a pet except when threatened they could rip your face off with those claws, when they weren’t too tiredΒ  πŸ™‚

The Koala

For more Sunday Stills, head over to Eds stills photography blog and find more pets.

  1. Think it is the ears we all find so attractive, little tufty things, and the snubby noses.

  2. LOL love this “pet”. I met a lovely koala in port Macquarie a few years ago. His name was Clancy. They are such cute little fellas but yes can be noisy and vicious if they want to!
    I love how you’ve caught them leaning back – it looks like their checking on you.

  3. The Garden Gnome was having lunch with his work crew (temp job a month or so ago) and they heard a noise behind them. There was a koala in a shrub just there. He tried to get a photo on his phone but it wasn’t that great. πŸ™‚
    Nice photos you’ve captured there. I love taking photos of the koalas at Currumbin.

    • Thanks Loisa. Oh sorry to spoil their charm, yes they have this horrible grunt (well the males do) at mating time and where I used to live that’s all you could hear, its a real guttural sound and quite annoying. Yes the claws large! Other than that they are as cute as a button and just very cuddly looking.


  5. They are so amazing! Love the fact that they sleep for 22 hours…

  6. I’ve never ever seen a koala in the wild 😦 so you were lucky to capture these guys lazing around. It must be quite a thrill to see them in the wild.
    If I want to get some pics of koalas, I go to Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary like suzjones does, to take photos of them. My brother and his wife came to visit us from the UK so we took them there recently and they were thrilled with all the animals they saw. Got some good pics of the koalas!

    • I must go there sometime. Its funny because I live here you always think there is time enough one day….Glad you got some good pictures. There are a lot of koalas around Currumbin Valley. My friend has one or two in her backyard because there are a lot of trees that they like.
