the prodigal daughter by koalagardens

the prodigal daughter

Phoenix was conceived and born here. I haven't seen her since mid February and she has grown a good couple of kg since then!
It took some real nose detective work to be sure it is her.
With luck she was holding a recently emerged joey close in her lap - when I last saw her here she had a small but definite pouch bump and this is her first joey.
Now I just hope she hangs about and we get to see more of her - wherever has she been. I sure wish they could tell me!
Amazing! She looks so comfy and sleepy here. Looking forward to seeing her little one if you can capture it. =)

What a great closeup - would be neat to see the little joey.

Such wonderful news, she looks gorgeous! Hope she knows what's good for her and stays.

What a cutie!
August 31st, 2020  
Just beautiful!

Sweet capture

So fuzzy and cute looking.
August 31st, 2020  
aww, you got her up close.
August 31st, 2020  
Welcome back Phoenix! Hope we get to see a lot more of you!
August 31st, 2020  
Great shot
August 31st, 2020  
Ohh a sweet capture of her.
August 31st, 2020  
We all are glad to see her again. Lovely capture.
(are the Koala`s chipped so the can be follow ? )
August 31st, 2020  
What a sweet face.
August 31st, 2020  
Oh how exciting, fingers crossed she stays around this time. Is she tagged?
August 31st, 2020  
I was wondering the same as Babs and Ferry. I remember that Bullet's ear is jagged because the tag that was once there had torn off but I wasn't sure if all your koalas get tagged or if it's just once in a while. So good to see Phoenix back and hopefully it will be a permanent return! Good shot.

How good to see her back - She looks so comfortable and somewhat smug as only her knows hes secrets !!
September 1st, 2020  
Very nice to see Phoenix.
September 1st, 2020  
I love that you're able to keep up with them, follow their lives and adventures
September 1st, 2020  
How lovely to have her back with her joey. She looks a little sleepy here.
September 1st, 2020  
Welcome home Phoenix & with a precious joey...
September 1st, 2020  
Great capture. It's amazing that you track them by the nose prints.
September 1st, 2020  
She looks so coy
September 1st, 2020  
Maybe that’s the effect of oxytocin!
September 1st, 2020  
I am so glad she came back!
September 1st, 2020  
That's hugely impressive that you can tell them all apart...and at a distance!
September 1st, 2020  
How nice to see Phoenix return and with a joey, at least you now know she is safe even if you don't know where she has been
September 1st, 2020  
Someone looks a bit sleepy!
September 1st, 2020  
Fabulous...fav
September 1st, 2020  
Ah, delightful!

@pyrrhula only koalas that have been captured to go in for a medical issue are tagged in the ear and microchipped. Phoenix has never been in care so she is chip and tag free (as well as wild 😊 )
September 1st, 2020  
@onewing @olivetreeann no tag on Phoenix 😊 If a koala has to be captured and taken into care because of a medical issue they are tagged in the ear and microchipped on release as part of the license for rehabilitation. Phoenix has managed to stay free all her short life so far 😊
September 1st, 2020  
Nice shot.
September 1st, 2020  
How great to see her after so long! Great capture.
September 1st, 2020  
It must be great to see her again, even more so if she has a joey.
September 1st, 2020  
Super capture, hope we get to see her Joey!!
September 1st, 2020  
Oh I hope she does stay around why wouldn’t she ? Best place for koalas!!
September 1st, 2020  
what a beautiful serene expression she holds
That nose is too cute - I think that is why I fell in love with Koalas when I was a child
September 1st, 2020  
I watched a tv program this week that said a Koala sleeps for around 20 hours a day and feeds for the other 4 so to get it with it's eyes open and mouth empty is some achievement.
September 1st, 2020  
@stevejacob yep they average 18 - 22 hours a day sleeping. thanks for noticing that when I can get photos or video of active koalas it's a real bonus as the most active time for them is the wee hours of the morning when it is completely dark. 😊

Great capture and lovely for Phoenix to return with her Joey where she will be safe.
September 2nd, 2020  
The children always come home – she seems very alert
September 2nd, 2020  
Cute, and lovely captured.
