Where else would you have Queensland Country Credit Union than in Koala House? There are a couple of large ones on the roof, but anyone entering this building looking for live koalas will be disappointed!

Hyena don't have a very good reputation. They are thought of as scavengers and carrion-eaters - both true. But they are also very skilled hunters. Part of their problem is the fact that they seem to just skulk around like this one is.

the hurdler by tff

Actually a competitor in the steeplechase, this athlete was competing at the ANZ Stadium back when it was called QE2. It was an event leading up to the 1982 Commonwealth Games. A photographic blast from the past!

The viewers

grey romance by tff

I took this photo in New Zealand a couple of years back and it remains a favourite. The couple were having a quiet glass of wine while watching this beautiful sunset. Because I used my flash to light them, it almost looks like they are sitting in front of a big screen. Click the pic for a larger view.

Tasmanian Devil

little devil by tff

Although Tasmanian Devils are carnivorous, they don't really eat their keepers! I think this one was just reminding him that it was lunch time. You'd best stand back when the food goes down though - they take no prisoners when they are eating.

Koala food

chewin' it over by tff

Koalas don't move around much because their eucalyptus leaf diet doesn't provide a lot of energy. They sleep for up to 18 hours a day.
