what a lovely portrait, i love the sleepy expression in his face. Super detail too, and the exposure is perfect. It's nice to dig out and share a favourite of your own sometimes.
Have a good weekend,

I guess they can't sleep all of the time! Nice portrait of this Badger - one of many animals I have not seen in the flesh. Good exposure to get the excellent black and white. Nice details of the face and his coat. I love grassy settings - we don't have much of that here.

This fellow could get a leading part in The Wind in the Willows right away!
And I think he is fully awake and alert, it is just he's born with small eyes...
Lovely fur coat, well groomed and captured skilfully to expose him at his very best!

hehe, i guess somebody woke him espcially for you, jeez, he has still got his eye(s) half closed, poor thing. *g*
lovely portrait with good sharpness and nice details,
and a badger that is alive - while on vacation in ireland we always drove past one that was lying next to the road...
well seen & captured, thor.

Hi Karan, lovely portrait with great details, excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
Last wednesday I watched a new program on BBC1. Its called The Nature of Britain. They also showed about 10 minutes on a group of badgers. What really intersted me is the difference between the Britisch badger and those from the mainland. The latter lifes more in a solitairy state and the Britisch in groups. The explained that it had to do with the weather and particulary with the rain. Since there is much more rain in Britain, there is more food available for them. So less a struggle to get food and less need to fight for it. I found that part very interesting especially since they live so close from eachother considering the size of the globe.
You captured the badger beautifully. The dreamy look is very cute. The details are perfect and I like the fact that you can see the wetness of his nose. The little twinkle in the eye is wonderful.

Hi Karen, great shot and what luck! You managed a very well focused shot if taken by surprise. I like the pov showing his handsome markings, light is good and colours wonderul. All nice and sharp. Great work.

I like very well your portrait. It is not usual to see it alive or during the day. The only time I saw one badger, he was dead along the road...
Thanks for sharing,

What a face, lol! Karan, this little creature looks so sleepy this is funny! I like this composition, low POV and matural exposure. This is an animal that I didn't know. Thanks,

I welcome this amazing post with any doubt. Wonderful shot of so beautiful animal. I do not cease to be surprised to work of a Sigma lens in skilful hands. Perfect sharpness and details of the image, wonderful rich colours, brilliant exposure and excellent DOF. I like the exact at high range framing and composition of the picture. Bravo and TFS.
