So we are back to the badger, Fred? Lovely capture of a very shy animal. I know we have some here too, but I think no one really knows where. Or the ones who know, don't tell, which is probably the best to do. Are these living free, or in some wildlife trust?

Thanks everyone for your comments, in response to Joline, the shot was taken at night using one flashgun mounted on a bar, and in response to Greg, I think I have a few images of her with the cubs I'll have to check,
Fred.
