Kangaroos, koalas and kritters galore

What to do when being a tourist in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia? Visit the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary. And then practice with a new camera.
Note the youngster riding on her back.

Let's try a little nap while all those people point at me.

Here, we can hide among the leaves.

This is a barking owl. Yes, they do bark.

Barn owls, on the other hand, are silent mouse predators.

Kangaroos seem tolerant of their visitors,

though some prefer lounging in the dust to interacting.

These kritters are so tame they'll eat out of your hand.

Nearby, the lorikeets enjoy breakfast.

And a monitor lizard basks in the sun.

Bill Bryson describes Australia as a continent where everything is trying to kill you -- not so at this Peaceable Kingdom.
