Hedgehog in feeder

By oldgreyheron      
I had an unexpected visitor inside the protective cover of my bird ground feeder this afternoon. I didn't see the hedgehog arrive, but even though it was a small one it had a squeeze to get between the vertical bars of the hemispherical protective cover!

I was on my hands and knees with the lens of the IXUS resting on the base strip (the one you can see in the background) unable to see where I was aiming! I think the camera has done well in auto macro mode.

I hope that all mothers had a good mothers' day in the UK today.

Mike

Wonderful black beady eyes, Mike, very well captured. I had one come into my garden yesterday, but he chose to visit at night! Carol

Give your Ixus a pat on the back, Mike. It has done you proud.

A cracking close up Mike, such pin sharp detail if you pardon the pun

An excellent shot, let's hope it was still small enough to get out!
