Hunting for ants!
We had a visitor in the backyard yesterday! An echidna digging around looking for ants. He was quite happy for us to get close. I guess with all those spines you don't need to worry about predators.
I made an echidna quilt many years ago that included an echidna, an echidna train (several males follow the female around!), a puggle in the nest (a puggle is a baby echidna), and some flora and fauna from the bush. It's hard to see but there are ants stamped on the central background fabric. Sorry about the quality of the photo, it's a photo of a photo! No digital camera in those days!
