Just Another Badger Monday?

Just one of the perks of living in the country?

I was surprised he was quite calm. All the stories I hear about Badgers made me scared to death of them. This one just watched us and never showed his teeth or threatened to rip our faces off. Lucky us I suppose?

      Awesome shot! How cute! I think their aggresiveness is over-rated, or maybe he just liked you! ;)

      Got a great close-up with that one - really cool capture!! Seems like that's an animal that's rarely seen - don't think I've ever seen one in the wild. Do you have many around your area?

      You must have come across the only passive badger known to man!! I for one am very glad you came away with you faces intact! ; )

      You continue to amaze me with your nature shots, absolutely brilliant. I just love his little face. His markings are fantastic and his fuzzy ears very cute! ; )
