Sturt gorge local

sleepy koala
high but secure in a tree
ignores keen tourists

I discovered this sleepy fellow just off the Sturt gorge river trail. Having zoom at max due to the height of the tree doesn’t help pic_clarity, but nevermind. By the time I took this shot, the Rosella’s that had led me up a hill by their flight to this tree had gone. I don’t mind.

Culture cliff note:
koalas are thought to be in a stupified ‘high’ most of the time due to their intoxicating diet of eucalyptus leaves.
