My friends Bob & Barb Cornish in Adelaide Australia keep me posted on Aussie animal news. I love koalas!

Ordinarily, koalas get all the water they need munching on eucalyptus tree leaves. Here is a photo I took in Brisbane, Australia in 2006: wild koalos in the trees!

(Be sure and click on photos to se the full size versions.)

During the recent drought, this was not enough... and one little koala came out of the trees to have a drink, and a bath!

This is one adorable marsupial!

It is very unusual for wild koalas to interact with humans. These cyclists had a remarkable encounter!

Here's a cute koala enjoying a drink and a bath. ADORABLE!

And finally, just for fun, here are a couple of my favorite koala portraits I shot during my 2006 Australia tour. I visited a zoo in every city. Three times in Sydney!!

This is a 'church signs' debate being played out in a southern town between a Catholic church and a Presbyterian church. From top to bottom shows you the response and counter-response over time.

The Catholics are displaying a much better sense of humor! You get the impression that the Presbyterians are actually taking this seriously!

Please click on the image so you can read the signs.

"Can't we just all get along??!!"
