Wombat Pool. by robz

Wombat Pool.

Cradle Mountain N.P.
Wet, foggy, cold, windy on the mountains, beautiful, rugged and fabulous.
The water is stained orange from the button grass. The wombats leave inch long cubes of poo on the walkways - why push through scrub when there's a path.
cubes? ouch!

Beautiful image. I love the brilliant colors glowing through the mist.

Looks pretty- but I guess you'd better wear boots if you want to walk along the path! Nice shot.

So glad you got people in this shot and how the path leads right to them...(which, of course, makes sense)...such good scale. Nice mist effect. You go to such interesting places!

Hi everybody - thanks for your interest, favs and wonderful comments on this photo. After telling Kali that I didn't know why the poo was cubic I did a Google:
This is a link to a site which explains why - and also has the cutest picture of a baby wombat!


@kali66 - and they are the only animals that do it - thanks for making me wonder why!
@wakelys - pretty strange hey?
@peadar - it is just beautiful Peter.
@ludwigsdiana - thanks Diana - they are fascinating
@helstor - probably true! - they do so much pooping!
@haskar - Thanks Haskar - it's so very beautiful
@elisasaeter - thanks Elisabeth
@tonygig - thanks Tony - thanks for the fav too. :) @cristinaledesma33 - i think the damp foggy conditions really helped with the green. :)
@olivetreeann - LOL Ann - you definitely have to watch where you're putting your feet. :)
@777margo - you are so right Margo - it's very special.
@pusspup - I think you would love it - it's very different to the mainland.
@sangwann - LOL Dione - they were pretty tired by the time they reached that spot. :)
@craftymeg - the cubes are pretty weird!
@bkbinthecity - thank you for having a look. :)
@granagringa - Thanks Granagringa for your lovely comments - I do appreciate them. We are lucky that our 2 girls are intrepid travellers and happy for us to tag along! :)
@jacqbb - Thanks Jacqueline :)
@casablanca- LOL - they use them as highways! We found out that they can run at 38km/hr - the girls saw 2 of them having a real barney - chasing each other, doing somersaults, biting each other !! :)
@pdulis - Thank you Peter
@shutterbug49 - Thank You Shutterbug - it's just wonderful - beautiful.
