5 Beautiful Urban Badger Photos

There is something special about the badger. They are both incredibly peaceful and beautiful animals with which my garden plays host to several, that pass through when night falls, as they forage around their urban surroundings. It was a truly wonderful day when I discovered these most unexpected of visitors and I’ve spent the last year capturing thier nocturnal visits on camera.

With the badger a subject of much controversy, being able to watch these wonderful animals come and go as they please, knowing they are under no threat wheresoever, has been heartwarming. Let us hope that the future of the species as a whole, get to live out their lives as undisturbed as those that I am fortunate enough to share my garden with.
