just call me spike

On the way home tonight we saw this little creature shuffling across the road.  I jumped out with the camera, trying to get pics of the echidna before it tried to hide.  Unfortunately I didn't get its face close up - that would be the few shots of dry grass I snapped while I raced from the car.  Look at those spikes though!  And see how washed out and brown the grass is already - this time last year, it was still green in November.  

We haven't had rain for about 6 weeks - it's going to be a long, hot summer.


  1. I am worried the grass seeds will sprout when it rains - did you pull them out of his back?

  2. Funnily enough, I almost went to... and though better of it - thank goodness!
