Nice capture. He looks like the rascal that keeps digging in my flower garden at least once a week.

What great shots!! I took pictures of 4 babies down in south Georgia but was so excited about seeing them I forgot to check the shutter speed and ISO. They came out a bit blurry.
Your shots are excellent!

Stupendous picks. In my country we name this amazing animals "mulitas", and I have a sad story with a happy ending about one of them. Sorry for the long post.

Once I traveled to the South of Argentina, thousands of kilometers. While crossing the Patagonia, a huge desert zone, the driver suddenly stopped, run to the desert and in a couple of minutes returned with a mulita (armadillo) in his hands. He putted the little beast in a bag, and presented it to me as a gift. He told me how to cook the animal: kill first, open the belly, clean it and cook inverted with his own outer skeleton over coal fire. He praised me about it being an exquisite and unique delicatessen. We arrived to destiny. When i was finally alone, i opened the bag. There it was, a frightened, incredible, beautiful and rare animal, waiting for the fulfillment of his fate.
I couldn't kill him, of course. I walked about 5 kilometers into the desert and returned the mulita where he/she (who knows!) belonged. And i feel fine about that!

Beautiful shot. I've always loved these guys but only seen a dead one on the side of the road when I visited Alabama once......

Stylishly clad in armored attire this animal is in the height of fashion. The best fashion photography I have seen this month!

Nice out come to a good story Ordo, I just knew you were a sucker for a pretty face! Frank

Don't think I've seen an armadillo on here before. Nice shots.
