Echidna quills - if only you could get this close normally

by Janine Combes | June 06, 2013


Recently I watched an echidna wandering around, digging for ants under my studio. I have to add these quills are not from it!  These images were taken of the quills of a dead echidna which had been killed on the road. Since I can't use them in my jewellery as they are a protected species I thought I'd  use the images my aluminium, photographic jewellery.
