Thanks Gilma, glad you like it. I was just happy it decided to come out with some daylight left.

Thank you so much for this spotting, ScottHarte. This animal has fascinated me since the first time I heard of it....It is the only mammals that lay eggs instead of giving birth plus it has many amazing features!!

Nice spot Scott. They're great fun to watch. I haven't seen one in the wild for yonks.
