Running Wombat

WINNER, JUNIOR 

Common wombat

Vombatus ursinus

I came across a wombat while hiking, and as soon as it saw me it ran between my legs and off into the distance. Fortunately, I was able to take a photo as it ran past me. The slower shutter speed helped to highlight the running wombat and added a sense of movement to the image.
