Maria Island 17/5/2017
Watching wildlife is a favorite pass time
as a small child and teenager I spent many days
on the North West Coast my parents owned a shack
at Arthur River , we used to go out spotlighting.
What is spotlighting ? I hear you ask ,
getting into the closest beach buggy or ute.
On top would be a huge spotlight one person
would shine it around the bush while we drove
mainly late at night so we could see the wildlife.
Wombats I love they seem to be so humble.
Only animal I know that has square poo's,
they can cause a lot of damage to farming
ground by digging under fences and earth holes.
We visited Maria Island last Wednesday
walking around with my husband, we
were amazed by the wombats that potted
around freely or laying asleep in the sun.
Images I have uploaded are the same wombat
I was fascinated by the fact it wasn't scared ,
continued to clean it's paw without a care
while we watched on.
I have cropped it to high light its paw and nose
