Good informative not Julie. I haven't seen a hedgehog for a very long time. They are very cute to look at but carry a variety of disease one being ringworm. Nice shot with good eye contact. Thanks
This is just beautiful! What an extremely cute photo. :) Details are excellent and exposure is spot on. Great DOF, very good note and good composition. Really well done! TFS!
Very good POV I think I would have cloned out the bright spots from the flash on its nose and eye. I sheared my section with a Hedgehog for near 10 years. It had this technique of putting its head to the ground and I believe listening for insects. It spent so much time like this that the bristles were prominently bent flat against its face.
Ahhh, now I'm jealous ;). I have had hedgehogs almost continually in my garden for the last few years and still haven't got an image nearly as good as this. Lovely and sharp with good BG and showing him in his proper habitat, among lots of fallen, crisp leaves. Lovely image, thanks for posting it :) The hedgehogs using my garden often develop a hacking cough, any idea why?
Excelent shot, Julia.
Well done on this composition and details. A cute little fellow.
However in N.Z. he's a bad little fellow. he's on the Unwanted list. Jancie will let you know.
Very nice shot.Perfect composition.DOF and details are wonderful.TFS...:-)
Very nice portrait of hedgehog. Good sharpness, colours and composition. Well done.
Very nice and unusual post... I just love all these brown colors and the clear black eye... TFS...Ina...
Great shot Julia!
It look very good as for the shot taken with flash, though maybe the focus isn't perfect.
The rest is great and I like it very much.
I really enjoyed reading your note. Well done on this.
Very good picture, Julia.
Nice light, colours, well composed and god detials.
Good note too. It's the same here, when I was a kid the hedgehog was very common, this they are quite rare.
Very well done.
Lovely shot, great colours and good dof. Note is comprehensive too.
Great capture Julia,
I'm surprised he hadn't rolled into a ball, he's posing well for you.
Excellent job with the exposure, nice detail and colour. Superb notes again Julia, Thanks for posting
NIce shot, focus a little soft on the face, but very nice.
I just a saw a program of an animal resuce shleter of the the UK on animal planet the weekend showing people tending for these hurt or abandoned little ones. Here in SA they are a rare sight and do not venture into gardens freguently. Its been years since I have seen a live one. Very nicley captured and a nice write up too. well done.
Julia, it's very nice.
Great composition, pose and eye to eye contact.
A pleasure to look at.
My favorite critter, Julia. There are not so many on this site and my wish is to find one as you did. You did well here, in the right environment and enough light to get it's sweet little face out. Thanks for posting.
These are such cute littel critters, and the tiny spines are so soft when one handles them. It is years since I have seen one - they are very rare here with us, in the city areas, that is, I have never seen them yet in teh wild. This one is gorgeous with thar beady litttle eye. TFS
