This is one of my favourite photos from our recent Tasmania trip. After exploring Mt Field National Park for almost three hours we saw this echidna five minutes from the end of the walking track. I got pretty excited! We stayed and watched for a while as the echidna moved around the area. After I took this photo the echidna wondered right up to my husband and explored his shoe before wondering off. Lucky us, we had perfect timing!
*We did not touch the echidna and stayed still when it got near us so we did not scare it*
