Heat Wave Photo Shoot

I don't know if you've heard, but Australia has been suffering a terrible heat wave the last few weeks. Last weekend, in fact, this led to a horrible set of bush fires in the southeastern state of Melbourne that ended up killing over 200 people. It's the worst natural disaster in the country's history. (I guess between the dryness and the wind, the fires would literally rush across parts of the state like a wave. Things would be fine one minute, and ten minutes later, darkness, soot, fire. Really terrifying stuff.)

Anyway, a friend of a friend sent some photos of some creatures that were looking for respite in the midst of the heat wave. Thought you might enjoy them.

The first set -- Koala!










Second Set: Kangaroo!
