BIG STEP, LITTLE STEP

WINNER, PORTFOLIO PRIZE

Common wombat, Vombatus ursinus

This mum and baby wombat emerged from their hole up the hill with purpose, and made their way down the hill, straight for another wombat’s hole. Rocky, the mum, was large and strong and powered through the deep snow like a bulldozer. Pebbles, her five-month-old baby, was light enough to walk on top without sinking.
