A platypus

Very hard to get in the wild - but this is the first I have managed.

Re: A platypus

A rare catch indeed... and well spotted.

Had always suspected these were a figment of a drunken Aussie's imagination.

An image to treasure, Terry, very envious indeed.

Re: A platypus

Well done Terry! Such a difficult little thing to spot in the wild, and such a thrill when you do!
Was it around Canberra or on your travels?
Great to see your shot.

Thanks Terry - we will be over that way in late May. Will put it on my list. Have only seen one in the wild once, in FNQ. Got the surprise of my life, and no camera around!
