Pic of the Day

Pic of the Day

Now it wouldn't have been a successful photo trip to Australia without some shots of a koala bear :)

These fellas sleep for 18 hours a day so they are pretty rare to spot in the wild. My Australian host said he had never seen one in the wild, and that even the ones in captivity were always just asleep in the tree tops. 

Lucky for me I was able to get some shots of one that came down for his daily meal. He was only about 10 feet from me as I snapped away and he seemed to be posing for the camera at times. 

I took about 50 shots, all of which were unique and interesting, but I had to choose one for the pic of the day. So I posted 4 different shots on my facebook page earlier today, and asked people to vote on which one should be edited as the Pic of the Day. This shot was the winner by just a couple votes, so I did a little lightroom and photoshop magic to make this cute fella the Pic of the Day

Hope you enjoy :)
