New Forest Walker's picture

This chap took off out of the undergrowth as I walked past, but instead of keeping running, he ducked under this fallen tree for a look at me. Not a great photo, but I was absolutely made up that I got anything at all! By the time I pressed the shutter again, he was off and I got an empty frame. It was about 7.30pm.

Agreed -

Any sighting of a live badger is a bit magical - and the chance for a photo is very rare.
