Winner, portfolio

Mountain Echidna: ‘I followed this short-beaked echidna for two days [in Main Range, New South Wales], its little tracks in the fresh snow leading me for kilometres to every dead tree and tuft of grass on the snow-covered range. When I finally tracked it down it was over 2,000 metres above sea level and not bothered in the slightest about being surrounded by snow and ice. Photograph: Charles Davis/South Australian Museum.
