What a face!!! It looks very mischievous. I don't know this animal specie; this is very unusual for me. This is a nice capture of it with interesting notes. I like those colors and very good POV. Thanks,

Nice capture, perhaps a bit too centered. These little digging machines have quite an attitude as well!

Probably it would have been one of my favorites (I don't know if that is a reference for Rick?;-) if I had a bit more,I think,DOF... more specifically in the nose and eye region as you can't distinguish both very well from each in the face.
I do like the compo, the unsharpness in BG and FG, the isolation of animal, animal depicted in natural environment and so forth...

This is a great shot with a great facial expression of this American Badger. This shot is well composed and nicely focused on the subject, blurring the rest and emphasising the badger.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Yes, really funny face!
Never seen this animal before, and a rare pic taken in the wild.
Excellent works and thanks for sharing.

What a wonderful expression! I love the low tone POV, the light is wonderful and you have captured some excellent details

I have never seen a badger face to face like that before. : )
What interesting markings.
Great POV and composition, with nice DOF work.
Focus and exposure are very good.
TFS. : )

A very good capture of this badger.I haven't seen many posted on this site.The colours are very natural,and the BG is lovely.I agree , he has a very interesting facial expression.Great job snagging this one.TFS
This is the first badger photo I have seen so far on TN. I guess we do not have badgers in Texas. I like his expression and the natural setting. Exposure is excellent with very nice colors. I like the photo so much that I tried a workshop to sharpen a bit.

Looks like you interrupted this digger Rick, and he ain't amused even though you are lying down on the job!
I would sooner confront a sneaker wave than this gopher gobbler, esp. on my belly!!!
I like the shot with the low PoV... But esp. the inclusion of natural habitat, But hey you know me, I'm not much for the zoo-zoomers. Thanx eh!
Don't know how I missed this shot, but it bubbled up to the front this AM!
