A collection of amateur photography and travel

American Badger

Over the last few years I’ve had a few encounters with American Badgers but almost all were very brief and limited to seeing them scurry across paved highways in my travels throughout southern Alberta.  Known for being very private with natal den sites and putting on an impressive display of attitude towards intruders; finding this den with 3 young of year last week was a rewarding encounter that was an exception to the norm.  While she watched closely, the female allowed me to photograph a tender moment with one of her young.  BadgerwithYoung
