After we published a romantic photo of an elderly couple, dancing at Seniors Music Day, sent to us by resident Barbara Gibbs, we decided to invite readers to send us photos they thought capture why we live here on Magnetic Island. We soon received a delightful response from Horseshoe Bay resident, Sylvia Hayes. But Sylvia didn't just send us a photo. She was so inspired she produced a watercolour painting too! Sylvia's message follows.
Thank you for the invitation to send in photos of our beautiful island.
This koala has been living here in my tree for about 2 weeks. I have seen him jump from one branch to another, like a monkey, and in the late afternoon he often climbs higher to eat the young leaves at the top. He leaves lots of cartridge shaped pellets on the ground, so it's easy to spot where he is each day. I am amazed at how well camouflaged he is, being the same colour as the bark. He is so so cute when he looks down at you.

If you have photos or an artwork which you think captures a beautiful Magnetic moment, why not send them to us so we can share them with the world. Just email email@example.com.
