      Although here we have scorched earth shadows; On 40+ degree Celsius days, grass dies unless it's being shaded by a tree (the tree also dies). If you go bush walking on hot days like this, you can usually find a lot of koalas who have become dehydrated and fallen out of their trees, dazing themselves when they hit the ground.

        Also, on such days, if you spend more than a few seconds in the sun, you'll conflagrate but during the warm part of the summer everyone carries either a fire blanket or a small extinguisher for just this eventuality.

        When the koalas fall out of trees and get dazed, they're easier to rape then, amirite?

      30 from Australia and in the same boat. Never seen or heard of this before, though I guess it makes sense that it does happen.

      I guess it's like how some people I've met overseas had never heard of drop bears coz they haven't been to Oz.

    I've never noticed them like that before. Awesome photography. Mother nature does some truely beautiful things. Situations like this make me wonder what else I've walked by and never noticed, and I spend most of my free time outside. I could also never live without seasons, love them.
