Badger cub at a sett in Gwent, notice the little wild flower stuck in the fur on his front leg, this was taken at the same sett as my posting of Badgers Foraging on the 14th of May.

I do envy you for your patience as I tried to catch some Badger shots and sat from evening to sunrise with no luck at all, so as I started to pack the equipment away out they came and I'm sure they where smiling !

Fine shot.

Excellent shot. Great detail. I have a sett nearby to where I live and keep meaning to try for some shots. Do you find that they get used to the flash?

Absolutely beautiful, and great to see. I too envy your patience, we have badgers our way but most of the ones I actually see are dead by the roadside...
1 Jun 2007 10:18AM
Yes Steve, they get used to the torch and the flash, the shutter noise is the main problem.

Great capture again Fred, I echo what Moira has said most of the Badgers I see are on the roadside.

Best Matt

Cheers Fred. I'll look forward to giving it a bash at some point. I've sat and watched them lots of times, and have them visit my garden most nights too but have never got around to photographing them yet.
