Caught this guy digging up a ground squirrel warren at Slough Creek in Yellowstone. It was kinda sad...the mom was trying to draw him away, but he kept eating her pups.

Great behavioral documentation.
I would have loved to get these as sad as it is for the ground squirrels.

Crop the last one and mask out the badgers body... Would look pretty funny :lol:


Yes I may have a warped sense of humor. :p

Wait wait... where's the warning in the title? ;)

Awesome shots! A badger's got to be a pretty rare shot... they are very retiring animals.

If I don't get the shots I want with the gear I have, the only optics I need to examine is the mirror on the bathroom wall. The root cause will be there.

I would have saved them.

That would be a case of a Squirrel badgering a badger. ;)

Awesome set. HUGE KUDOS.


Have plenty of Canons, enough ammo, enough to blow 'em to "L". Now, I just have to learn to aim.
