Koala comes to campus

[The photographs are also included within the .mp3 file. View them via iTunes artwork, for example].

A young koala came to campus. While not a common sight, koalas might be seen in the middle of campus a handful of times a year.

Koala up tree
A koala came into the centre of campus this afternoon. While not an especially common sight, they can be seen a few times a year. The koala is about 25m/80ft above ground level, and snug behind the branches. Even with a 280mm lens this is a close as I could get.

Bees are still busy
It’s spring – the bees work overtime on the pollen.

Slippery slope
I was going to make a comment about how unlikely frost would be – but then I heard that it was 3c/37f overnight.

Dust trail following my tracks
The still air was conducive to the dust trail hanging in the air long after I had driven over the dirt road. The sun, sitting low in the sky, illuminates it from behind.
