You wouldn't have needed any lessons in photographing this creature, Fred, and you must have been delighted to see it at the BWC, and get the chance to take an amazing image like this.

A fine shot of your nom de plume Fred, he certainly is a handsome animal. The only time i've ever seen one is at the parc natur in Cilgerran, I wonder if it is still open?

A great Badger image, Fred.

Years ago, we lived in the UK for a year. We spent several weeks living just out of Glastonbury, in Somerset, with some Aussie friends. They were teachers at the prestigious Millfield School. We were fortunate enough to see our first Badger while we were living there. There were some living in the bushes not far from the School's main buildings. We felt we were priviledged to see one!


Cheers

Phil
