    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!

Wonderful capture! That must have been quite an experience! Looks like it is tagged, like they do to some of animal life here.

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.
