The birdlife was very elusive this morning. But I spotted this little guy foraging for ants amongst the Pigface & reeds in a marsh not far from home.
All shots taken with the D300s + 70-200mm f/2.8G.
FYI. These animals are one of 2 egg laying mammals we have here. The other one being the Platypus. I look forward to being able to post one of those soon......Scotty.

#1. 1/500s @ f/5.6.
