An echidna drops by for a manicure – now that’s a rare event!
Following on from my previous post, which included a video of our visiting echidna dropping by for a scratch, I now share with you a close up photo of him setting up for a manicure!
Just look at those nails – I think they need some work, don’t you? I know I’m not game enough to tackle him though!
This week’s photo challenge asks for something that stands out from the everyday- a rare image. These little creatures are very shy and it’s hard to get a good shot of them. They usually roll up into a ball when they sense anyone or anything nearby, just in case it is a danger to them and they use their spikes as a sort of armour.
To get this photo was a rare event and I’m thrilled, I love these little animals!
