What gorgeous little creature came waddling down the hill?
Squint closely, can you see?
We raced up for a closer look, but if you can believe it, the little soul was too fast for us.
And burrowed amongst the leaves.
Until we couldn't see it anymore (or so it thought).

Yes, it was an echidna.
We're all buzzing from such a beautiful gift.
