Here's Koala again. To ge this shot AND to get her attention, I had to lie down on the ground making animalistic chewing sounds. That's why she's looking at me with that intrigued expression on her face!
This photo was taken when my sister first found her, before having been taken to the vet for the first time.
At this moment she's at the veterenarian clinic where she was operated almost two weeks ago now. She's been there all this time and we still don't know when we can go pick her up. The vet says she's been recuperating very slowly because her condition was very delicate. We think AND hope, however, that this week she'll be coming home.

Thank you for visiting. I'll be back later. Have a nice day!

Such as I replied to John:
My sister just called me up saying that Koala has been given "sick leave" and we will be picking her up later today. Now, only time will tell if she will be able to make it or not.

Hello Maria.
Great point of view here and well presented with very original frame.
Looks very effective.
My compliments.

Hi Lurdes,

I so hopes she will come through and gets her strength up a bit.
The things you do for a good picture - I can see it, because I have done it as well.
Lovely clear picture - hope she does not act too insulted after you left her at the Vet's - because they can do that.

Take care, all of you,


Hi Lurdes
I sure hope Koala recovers soon. Poor little thing.
She sure looks a bit rough here, like she been through a lot. Good for you for getting her to a vet. So many people wouldn't. Koala still has a sparkle in her eyes and you captured it well.
TFS Janice

Olá Lurdes,
Bela imagem da Koala. Parece que andou à luta, pois tem o narizinho esfolado ;-)
Fabulosa definição e expressão, está mesmo atenta ao que se passa.
Parabéns pela mascote e pelo momento partlhado,
Grande abraço,
Santa Páscoa,

Hi Lurdes ,
