Southern Brown Bandicoot at Tidbinbilla Sanctuary in Canberra.
He walked right past my boots, but I couldn't focus that close!

A very well captured wild animal. Very interesting settings on a day with bright sunshine. Excellent work and many thanks for posting.

Thanks Tony! It's a rare experience to photograph Australian animals in the daytime - most are nocturnal.

Nice closeup, Rob. Great capture of that long snout with excellent detail. What is the minimum focus distance for that lens?

Thanks Mike! According to the PF lens review, it's 2 metres. My impression is that it changes depending on the focal length, but I could be wrong. Certainly it's further than the distance from my shoulder to the ground. I kind of wish that I'd taken video with my camcorder, but I'm happy with this photo.

Maybe he's in search of a grub, but he also appears to be keeping a close eye on you.
Angky.

Terrific close-up Rob! It is a very interesting looking animal. The nose looks like it takes some abuse from digging into things.

Not just me, but the other two people who were standing nearby. We stayed still and he went across the ground between us. Very bold for a Bandicoot!

Thank you! Yes, you often find conical holes which they dig while sniffing out food. He had just finished pushing his way through leaf litter.
