Great set up and capture, Edno! A very nice view of Mr Brock, framed beautifully by the flowers. Well done.

Love the setting and so cool to see a badger in a garden-sort of story-book like. Nice set-up-well done!

Excellent catch - impressed by your setup - but even more by your garden and nocturnal visitors!

Hi all,
Many thanks for the encouraging comments on the "Garden Visitor". I am so fortunate to have nightly visits from the local badger family and the fact that they use the same paths made it possible to capture the image. The blossoms are on a Dogwood shrub that was a blaze of colour this year.
Thanks again
