Look What We Saw

We had to go into town the other evening and on our driveway we had to give way to this little fellow.

He was well on his way by the time I had my camera out.  We decided to follow him to get a better look, but he did his best to hide from us.

We’ve been out here for 14 years and this is only the third time we have seen an echidna.  It’s nice to know that they are around.

As we continued on our way into town there was the most stunning sunset.

I’m glad we weren’t just at home or we would have missed both of these great sights.

How wonderful to have a little echidna visit. Gorgeous sunset too.

I don't see too many around here, just the aftermath in the garden!

I love seeing echidna's..........what special things you found on your trip to town..........there has been a lot of colour in the sunsets lately as everyone is burning off cropping paddocks so the extra smoke in the late afternoon makes a difference..........

Echnidas are just gorgeous. It is so special to see one. we were lucky enough to have one visit and sit under DH's chair on the verhandah.He did not stay long.
Your sunset is really pretty.
