Echidna encounter

It was a slow day. Like everyone, I was exhausted from 15 weeks of lockdown. I didn't feel like taking photos. I said a prayer that I would find something special and as I rounded the corner, I stopped in my tracks. I counted 1, 2, 3, echidnas!

In shock, I followed the three spiky, ant-loving, egg-laying, marsupials, trying not to scare them in my excitement. The two males, followed the female, in a special mating season conga! They stopped for ant and termite snacks then came over to say hello!

Unexpected encounters, like this, move me, shape me and change me. I hope you enjoy the photos in my collection, but more than that, I hope they inspire you to get out into nature and have special encounters of your own.

I love discovering and sharing the amazing beauty of nature. With experience in environmental education and a passion for nature photography, I can personalise a tour in our local bushshland. See tours page.

"Thanks for a wonderful tour. You just can't beat local knowledge. I walked the same path two days prior to jumping on Steve's tour and saw a few birds. But Steve showed me what he has learned over the years and this is just one of the photos I walked away with. He's a nice guy to top  it all off!"
