Badgers Foraging

By Badgerfred
At a Sett in Gwent.
I joined Gwent Badger Group in 1992 and was introduced to several setts in Gwent, I was on the committee until 2000 and responsible for the Promotion Goods. I left because of my health,but I am still a member of the group.
(Dedicated to Jack Kelly former Field Officer of Gwent Badger Group, he introduced many people to badger watching at this sett, and this was his favourite image).

Taken at Sett G.

Agree with comment above, all too often the only chance people get to photography these animals is in captivity. You have done a good job of this.

You said, one can never be too late for clicks and comments. And as the criminal who always comes back to the place of crime, I come back to portfolios I like.
You also told me, these badgers are living free. So you must spend some time in a hide to be able to take these shots. All the more I appreciate them. Else we would never see these beautiful animals in their normal habitats. Thanks you for sharing these pics with us.
