    Cool capture

  • We just happened to see this fella when we were on our way back to the campsite – I put the camera on ‘burst’ setting so I could get lots of photos while he walked past and then I could just choose the best one (ie. while he’s not walking the other way!)

    He’s so cute..! From the thumbnail I thought this was a Kiwi, lol :) Nice catch!

  • Ha ha, not a kiwi, but I think this one was quite young (the spikes are bigger on the older ones).
