I’d been trying to get a shot like this for a while but they always jump out in front of you at the last second from the bushes and I’ve never been quick enough. And no, this wasn’t just before I ran him over. Having spotted him off to the left, I slowed the car, grabbed the camera off the passenger seat and waited for him to play chicken. He made his move, I made mine, click, click, click through the windscreen and that was it. We were in Cape Le Grand National Park, Esperance, Western Australia (Frenchman’s Peak in the background) and if you look close you’ll see he’s having breakfast on the run.
