Solitary Echidna

I’m was so happy to come across this solitary mammal a few days ago. The colour of the Australian bush reflected in its spines, lighting up the shot.

I couldn’t help but focus on the eye at f1.2 (to the non photographers out there f1.2 means there is a shallow depth of field…ie not much in focus) when I saw the Echidna looking back at me. So cute!
