Best Shot Monday: Wildlife Again

Saturday afternoon there was high drama across the road as this koala was attacked by a couple of large crows. We watched in awe as he put his little arms and claws across his face to ward off his attackers and after we had come running across the road doing our impression of analogue scarecrows he peered down at us as if to say "what are you making such a fuss about?"

The really interesting thing was watching a couple of Rosella parrots 'escort' the crow away!

Of course the koala sighting was not the ONLY good thing to happen this weekend!
The Baby Angel is indeed a star and helped her team to achieve a very convincing lead in the first quarter. Remind me to get her a different colored hair band! :-D

Next week is the Grand Final. Wish us luck!!!!

Dash over to Best Shot Monday to see what Tracy and the gang are up to.

I still think that it is totally cool that you have things like Koala Bears that live right outside of your house! I am so jealous...the only thing that we have around here are corn fields.

And congrats to BA and her team on the win -- and good luck to them in the finals!
