I've been trying over the last year or so to get a really good Echidna photo. It's difficult mainly because they are so low to the ground and often vegetation obscures the view.
This collection of photos are the best of probably a couple of hundred I've taken, and as I've become very fond of these guys they now have their own dedicated page..
They really are interesting animals, to learn more you can try these links:
