thanks for all the comments, this chap pops out everyday about 3ish which is quite unusual for a badger in the UK as they are mainly nocturnal, he/she lives in a set at the back of my mothers cow shed on her farm on Exmoor in Somerset and yes they have large claws and big teeth over here as well...

Beautiful shot btw. It definitely does look like it posed for you and waited for you to get your lighting all setup.

I would proudly frame this! Beautiful shot.

For you folk over the pond: UK badgers must be very different from yours. We rarely see ours, being almost totally nocturnal, and one whiff of human scent will send them back underground for hours.
