A wonderful capture Ian. This image of such a rare little beauty truly put you in the right place at the right time. Very well taken mate.

Thanks, PJV ... I'll take you behind the red curtain though by saying I wasn't in a hide in Tasmania, but the enclosure in Healesville. The FA has really obliterated the background.

It'd be a life highlight to see these guys (down to one group) in the wild.
