Author's notes

As the drought continues, the thirsty echidnas have ramped up their use of the birdbath. Initially just a drink and a quick wade through, they now groom, soak, roll around and wallow. At least two are visiting daily at the current time. Contrary to appearances, this echidna is alive, in a reverie of bathing pleasure.
