Echidna

Celebrating my first anniversary on Flickr, I've posted something typically Australian. An echidna, which I discovered while out walking with our dogs. It didn't seem fussed by my proximity and it was hard to get a decent shot as it kept walking towards me!

Since this photo has been featured in a Flickr Blog I have been overwhelmed with requests to join Groups or be a Contact. Unfortunately I just don't have enough time but I thank you sincerely for your comments and Faves.
