This was not a normal encounter with a Badger. Often, they are on the move, in and out of the den, heading off to another den, or just disappearing under ground. Not this guy! This Badger was out enjoying the day, and was quite content to let me hang around taking pictures. He may look very ferocious here, but in reality, he is simply rolling over during an extended yawn. Digging all day can be very tiring work!!!!
