Badger cubs


The Badgers young are now out and about, Still small about 14″ long they stay close to the Sett entrance but are not that timid, Sometimes coming too close. As i Move around only two meters away from them they’re totally unconcerned, Concentrating on the peanuts scattered about. Sudden noise sends them trotting back into the sett only to reappear within a minute or two, to carry on the business of finding food.

The pictures were taken with flash and the Badgers are totally unconcerned , showing more interest in the click of the camera earlier on when the light was better. After the first shutter click this too has no effect either !
