Our Aussie Animals

This is for a challenge over at Do More with Less and it was suggested by a fabulous Aussie lady, Lizzy Hill.  This was quite a challenge for me because the only time I've cut a photo in recent years was when Georgia Heald had a challenge to cut a photo up, that was hard but this one did make sense to me because I could cut out the pieces I didn't want ie. people in the background.  Thanks for allowing me to push my boundaries with this challenge Lizzy.
Here it is and yep it's one of me.
These photos were taken on a trip to Tasmania in 2005.
