A spiny visitor pays reader Tamara a visit on her property outside Mungindi, NSW

This week’s reader photo was taken by Tamara on her property outside Mungindi, NSW.

“I live on a rural property 23km outside of Mungindi. I took this photo of a young echidna as it was passing near my house. It curled into a ball when I approached, so I just lay on my stomach, with my camera at the ready, and patiently waited for it to keep going on its way. Which it did happily,” she said.

Taken with Canon EOS 7D and Canon EFS 100-400mm lens.
