A great example of a fine photo resulting from a photographer being at the right place at the right time and having the skill to capture the moment beautifully. V

Great shot of the unusual Marcel. A 'reflective' Koala!

Wonderful capture and nicely composed! I did not see this before. I think Koala is always on the tree.

this is a nice, unusual picture, I allways expected to see koala's in trees!
and with the reflection it is a really awesome capture!

Kamat, I think the Koala wandered on the beach following a river bank. However the river made a big bend when it enters the beach. I think the Koala had difficulty getting back to the trees because of the river blocking the most direct route back.

Quite remarkable considering Koalas sleep during the day (for 16 hours) and live in eucalypt forests.
Koalas habitat requirements include the presence of their preferred food trees. Where are the trees?
Was this one sick?

What an amazing shot! I've lived in Oz for the past 30 years and I have only ever seen one koala in the wild. Well done, Marcel.
