Phillip Island Koala
Philip Island : : Victoria, Australia
Its tough to get an up close photo like this of a Koala, as they’re often high up in the trees. It is also tough to get a photo of a Koala with their eyes open, as they’re sleeping most of the time.
When I was at the Koala Conservation Centre on Phillip Island, I was lucky enough to catch both. This Koala had come down from his tree and was walking along the handrail of the boardwalk to a new tree. I was using my 70-200mm f2.8 lens – one of the lenses I suggest for people interested in Wildlife photography on my Professional Photography Blog: Photo Provetnure.
