it's all in a mothers nature

Smokey really is growing fast now - will be independent by the end of the year and we still haven't confirmed girl or boy!
Thank you for the lovely words of support here, so exhausting living through the constant apprehension here as fires still burn even if the risks this week have lessened.
this is the most gorgeous picture! I really can't imagine the stress of what you are going through with the fires atm... it is just awful seeing the pictures of koalas with little mittens on :(

so adorable! I hope you get relief soon! The fires are making the news here and yesterday there was a story about a burned koala who was burned.

On the news here: a woman saved a koala with burns out of the flames. Saw her sprinkle it with water. The koala was transported to a hospital. Sad to sea its pain :-(

Koala shots don’t get better than this! Truly awesome! 100 Fav’s
November 21st, 2019  
Lovely shot. Fav!

This is the quintessential koala shot - a thought though, given how sharp their claws are, how come mum doesn't get injured when a joey clings to her like this?
November 21st, 2019  
Wonderful capture! Fabulous pic!!
November 21st, 2019  
What a fabulous capture of this gorgeous pair. We are seeing such horrifying images on tv of koalas being burnt. I hope you get some relief very soon! Stay safe xx

Adorable shot
November 21st, 2019  
Such a beautiful image of the two looking so healthy , when we see the horrors of the fires and the and the state of the Koalas that are save from the fires and taken to the hospitals . So , so distressing , even to just see the poor little victims !
November 21st, 2019  
Ha ha boy or girl?
November 21st, 2019  
Such a super capture...:)
November 21st, 2019  
@vignouse very thick coat is the first answer. second answer is that by the time she tells joey NO MORE the coat and skin on her shoulders is in pretty poor condition! :)
November 21st, 2019  
Wow what a wonderful portrait! They posed for you to show off their furry beauty.
November 21st, 2019  
@gijsje Saw that movie too. And : there is a great collect to get money with good result to pay the surviving.
Lovely pic.

Wonderful mum and Smokey capture Fav
November 22nd, 2019  
They must be such a joy to watch
November 22nd, 2019  
Aw they look so sweet.

Very smokey here today, your koala has a good name for the present situation. Hope he/she stays safe.
November 22nd, 2019  
Super capture. Surprised that the claws of the little ones, don't dig into the adult, the way it's hanging on.
November 22nd, 2019  
Absolutely gorgeous. capture...
November 22nd, 2019  
way too much cuteness in 1 pic fav
November 22nd, 2019  
@onewing yes indeed this joey was named back when the fires began in September - can't believe we are still battling them!
November 22nd, 2019  
so very sweet. Did you get many rescues in? so sad to see so many koalas perish
November 22nd, 2019  
@sugarmuser hey Sharon. What is really sad is that no, not many at all. Our fires were so huge and so hot and fast, that hardly any koalas escaped. They were also in more remote locations than many of the Coffs Harbour and Port MacQuarie fires.
So far we have rescued about a dozen, and successfully released a mum and joey. Most have not survived. It's like this huge weight bearing down when we think about it.
November 22nd, 2019  
@rickster549 the fur is really thick, but yeah the mums end up really tattered around the shoulders by the time they say enough is enough! :)
November 22nd, 2019  
This is a classic shot; so well done. Keeping you and your lovely koalas in my thoughts.
November 22nd, 2019  
@koalagardens your work is very important and even more so now.
November 22nd, 2019  
@sugarmuser every tree is now critical - I drove to Lismore yesterday (17 km) and there were hundreds of dead/dying trees and shrubs, visible from the road, so how many trees are dying I fear to even start to think. These are not from fire, but from the drought conditions, so are on top of the more than one million hectares of forest that have burned. How are things up your way, you are safe?
November 22nd, 2019  
@koalagardens I'm safe, fires on all sides of Brisbane. Air quality is bad everywhere. Praying for rain :)
November 22nd, 2019  
@sugarmuser yes the smoke is just horrible. I've danced every which way, but obviously that was a mistake ...
November 22nd, 2019  
Love the piggyback pic! Fav.
November 22nd, 2019  
This must be the most beautiful shot ever! Both of them giving you eye contact, they seem to be smiling. Awesome capture and huge fav!
November 22nd, 2019  
Hi. Im back after a holiday and worried about the Koalas in the fires. So pleased to see these ones -top shot !
November 22nd, 2019  
This is wonderful! I am hoping the fire is brought under control very soon.
November 22nd, 2019  
Just so precious!!
November 22nd, 2019  
A real classic, fav
November 22nd, 2019  
Delightful capture :)
November 22nd, 2019  
Beautiful shot of the two looking your way. Our news had the Koala rescue also. I think his name was Louis. I hope he is improving.
November 22nd, 2019  
that is adorable
November 22nd, 2019  
Love this shot, glad they are thriving, fav
November 22nd, 2019  
Hope that rain comes soon. Your comments and those of other 365ers are distressing, such shocking loss.
November 22nd, 2019  
A great pose and lovely lighting - fav!

I saw a story here in Iowa USA about the Koalas and the devastating fires there. So sad. Your photo is adorable.
