Our neighbourhood koala has moved on, presumably growing tired of being attacked by Magpies, stalked by the neighbours huge dog and in search of better eucalyptus. The koala got sweet revenge on the dog from time to time by peeing and pooing on him. When it was in the tree initially I saw it being attacked by Magpies for daring to try to share their space. Very noisy and aggressive, Magpies.
After a great deal of caffuffle and commotion, the koala took off just like this one, complete with a baby on its back. Very dramatic. I didn't get to capture that moment, but this series of photographs from The Telegraph are great.
