My First Armadillo

Been looking for one of these that wasn't roadkill. Finally scored last night. A lot of vegetation in the way, and the dark necessitated flash and made focusing difficult. A plus was that the critter didn't seem terribly concerned with me, or the flash.
Very cool! I've never seen one live either. A couple road kill when we went to Florida once.

Have to share this with "y'all". I was talking with a local sheriff this afternoon. Transplant to Florida from N. Carolina. When I told him that I'd finally "captured" an armadillo after only seeing them as roadkill, he said:
"That's why they always told me the chicken crossed the road.
To show the armadilla it could be done." @tobi @karenann @sugarmuser @marzenka @lynnb
Thanks for the kind comments. Glad you enjoyed it.

Lived in Florida for 5 years, Texas for 11 years, Okalhoma 1 year and never saw one alive. They are just as ugly alive as dead. But have to say, nice catch.
