Echidna! Lake St Clair

One fine sunny day up at Lake St Clair, an echidna was enjoying the views as he seeks out his lunch…

Our little echidna makes his way across an old log, not paying any attention to the sparkling blue water of Lake St Clair, Australia’s deepest lake; nor of the bloke lying in the sand trying to balance and point a camera at him! All this fellow is interested in a hearty ant lunch…

The echidna continues his journey and his search for a meal, kicking out his hind leg for a little extra speed and power to traverse the log…

Perhaps its time to give up on all this hard yakka and go for a spell in the luxurious surrounds of the nearby Pump House Point…

Here endeth the story 🙂
