Decisive moment 2 – why did the wombat cross the road?

Written by Gary on August 13th, 2014

Wombats are heavy marsupials native to Australia.

This wombat decided to walk across the road after the snow storm and luckily I had camera in hand and ready to shoot – albeit with only the 20mm pancake lens on.

Cradle Mountain Peppers Resort.

Olympus OM-D E-M5 Micro Four Thirds camera with the lovely compact and sharp Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 lens:

and here is a Tasmanian pademelon – a relative of the kangaroo, again with the 20mm lens while I walked the King Billy rainforest walk:

Why the 20mm lens? I had walked this walk the previous day before the snow and shot with the 12mm lens, so this day in the snow I chose a different lens – plus, it fitted easily into my jacket pocket when I didn’t need it.
