Badger, northern New Mexico. This badger is building a “set” in the middle of a meadow, strewn with wild flowers, in northern New Mexico. It has taste in locations, the setting was stunning. Pami spotted dirt flying in the air from a hole in the ground. We were going slow, as we drove along the rain muddied road, or we may have missed this outstanding creature. I made a number of images before it was done digging, before it disappeared down the hole. I’ve seen three of these animals over the years, one alive in England, one dead at the side of the road in England, and this magnificent specimen. This badger made our hearts beat faster today. Thanks for looking. G

Loved seeing a badger!!
Pretty amazing and a first for me in NM. Thanks Kirsten. G
I have seen one in AZ. At least that is what i thought it was. A sweet face with a strong stand!
A little old man face I thought when I saw it. Thanks for sharing Fran. G
Excellent image and a great find by Pami. Badgers? We don’t need no stinking badgers! One of my favorite bad puns from “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre.”
ROTFLMAO. Thanks for the chuckle Ron. See you soon. G
