Walking hay bale

Craig sent a photo the other day, and it was good news.

It looks like a hay bale after a long hard winter, but it wasn't.

It was a bodacious badger and a new species for our camera trap survey of the carnivores of Chimineas.

It revealed a bit more of itself in one other photo, but not much.

We hope to see more of Br'er Badger and its kin in the coming months.

Woohoo! Should be a good season for ground squirrels and badgers. :)

Congratulations! Is this a first for you, ever, or just at this location? The second pic is great - gotta love those dramatic stripes on the face.

Yes, I am still hopping a little.

It IS a first for me, but Craig has taken their pics before.
