I spotted this little Echidna on the road to Arthur’s Seat in Victoria. As well as taking pictures I managed to warn other cars to slow down whilst he tried to cross the road.

Yanni has been capturing and documenting life and events on camera for three decades ever since his father gave him an old Pentax film SLR camera in 1982 .
He has also been working in digital art since the late nineties, from his graphic designs and collages to the complex photo realism of his sci fi / fantasy art.

    Wonderful capture of this little guy striding out…(don’t usually think of echidnas as ‘striding’ LOL..!)….Glad you could help him cross the road safely Yanni….Well done all round..!

  • Thanks Meg – He was just quietly going about his business. When he gets to soft ground however, he starts burrowing – if he thinks he’s in danger.
