Birds and a koala

These photos were taken recently when we went camping. This is a stream that crosses our camp ground.

We had a lovely time camping with not much to do at all. Our daily activities included reading, drawing, deciding where to eat and watching the world (mostly birds) go by.

Here are photos of birds we spotted:

It was happy to sit on my hand for some biscuit crumbs.

We saw 2 koalas – noisy creatures, especially at night. They make sounds like snoring but 50 times louder!

We celebrated my husband’s birthday. On his birthday, we had a nice meal out. That’s him – the birthday boy having a stretch on the beach.

That's a good camping time had. Very nice opportunity too "playing" with the birds. Very good shots, series that tells all.

Looks like you had a great time. How I miss camping. Our last camping trip was last January. I love all your photos. You take good pictures.

I love your bird and animal pics. I have only seen these species in zoos. I am not a fan of camping in a tent, but I could do it in these circumstances. I don't see any blood thirsty mosquitoes...

Fabulous photos especially the bird on your hand, the koala and the birthday boy!

Lovely birds and I can't imagine seeing a koala in the wild! My daughter was nuts about koalas for the first 12 years of her life and we have about a zillion stuffed and other type ones that she collected.

Loved your photos, especially the one of your hubby catching a few winks on the beach, and of course all the animal photos were great. Camping sounds like so much fun.
