Eastern quoll, Dasyurus viverrinus


Once night fell, high up the mountain near an old hut, a young eastern quoll came out, bouncing around the campsite. It didn’t look at us at all. After following it for about two hours, it came close to this pool for a drink. I used a single flash off-camera, off-centre and down low to get the reflection I needed.
