Real Live Pin Cushion

Driving down the York Williams road late Friday evening and  we shot past this guy .

Only just managed to spot him on the side of the road and I wasn’t real sure that it was an echidna but I had to have a look.

By the time I pulled up , turned around and went back he was almost gone. I had the 70-200 on and no time to change  a lens as he wasn’t hanging around. I laid down on the side of the road next to him , it was hard to find a spot because there was a bit of water laying around.

It was nearly dark so this is the best I could get in a hurry. When I’ve seen one of these in the past  they have  rolled up in a ball and stayed there for ages, but this guy just had one thing on his mind and that was to bolt to the nearest ant’s nest.
