    Today we have a catastrophic bushfire warning out for parts of New South Wales, I do worry about our wildlife in such fires, particularly the Koala that live in the trees!
This could turn out the be our hottest day on record, a prospect I am not looking forward to!

The only thing with a cuter face (maybe) is a baby panda - just adorable, John! Hope the fire gets contained and extinguished soon!

I saw on TV about terrible fires in Australia. I hope the rain will surprise you. This is a great capture, John, she looks so friendly.
Take care.

What a great find John. I hear that they aren't too cuddly, and guess you were smart to let him get back to his business of sleep.

Beautiful shot, John! I have read where they sleep almost all of the time, but especially in the daytime! What a treat to come upon one in the wild!

So far so good, it's 3pm & no signs of smoke to be seen. I put my thermometer out the front to test the heat & it blew up!! It wasn't even in the sun!!! I'm hoping for safety for the animals also. Great shot of this little bloke, hope he finds a place to keep cool=^..^=

Beautiful capture of this cute and sleepy fellow John! Hope you are safe - our summers seem to be getting hotter and I feel for our fauna and all those people affected by the bushfires.
