    Taken in the conservatory as usual , trying out some powerful torches to illuminate the decking and improve the light

    These two are this years cubs

    I lose the noses sometimes as they get within an inch of my feet

    And my most recent ( and bestest) photo. I like it for pose ( hard to get them to sit up, as they snuffle about on the deck all the time ) lighting is better as well

    Got to keep working on it to get it perfect, but its hard as they are very very shy nocturnal animals and, sadly I have to shoot through double glazing at the moment

    The PLease stop refers to the pointless brutal cull of course :(

    Thanks Julie that is high praise indeed coming from you

    Still want to keep pushing though.

    I know no one will notice or care but I spent 2 hours cloning out peanuts.

    So that is peanuts they are eating then? Just what is happening to these animals. If there is sound with the video I can't hear it at work.

    They look beautiful. Obviously not American Badgers. Do we have an equivalent here in the US do you know?

    They are cute. Look like big teddy bears.

    They are nothing like the honey badgers or rather more vivacious American badger. More like raccoons I guess. They are very common over here but I would guess 95% or more of the population have never seen a live one.
    They love peanuts :)

    Indeed , wanted to spend time getting it just right as I was sure it was my best one yet. Not sure what to 'do' with it though.

    John our badger population is being culled in a poorly conceived plan by the government to reduce bovine TB. All the science suggests it won't work and will not be humane but there are politics being played here with the farmers.
