Young Hedgehog

We went for a walk this afternoon in the Hobbucks in Arnold.

I was looking for some Autumn colours to photograph, but the trees in our bit of the country haven't quite turned to Autumn hues yet.

However, as we were walking through the footpaths of the woods, Jane spotted this little hedgehog in the middle of the path.

I got on all fours and started clicking away, while Jane stood some distance and distracted Ruby.

A half decent photo for a nifty fifty prime lens on my SOny A6000
A beautiful shot of Miss Tiddlewinkle -- great detail and clarity . Glad you are nimble to get on all fours and get up again !!!!!!! fav

Considering that these animals are so very shy I am amazed you managed to get near to him at all. You got a superb capture. Did you need help to get on both feet again? I would have because of my back.

Love that beady eye - as you say, a good catchlight is a decided asset.
Well spotted Jane. Well taken Phil. :-)
