Night visitor

Last night I noticed a cat in my garden observing something with great curios. I had to see what that was.
It was a little hedgehog probably looking for food. I quickly went into the house and grabbed my camera. I had to get myself below a rose bush in order to take a photo. I took many of them but there was only one I could say that it turned out well. My sons went out to see „where was burning“ :-) and saw me in my trying to take a photo of hedgehog and they were laughing at me. They found it so strange and funny.

Very nice!
This is the best when you have a digital camera:to see the situation and to take the picture.
And hedgehog is very nice small animal:I like them.

I have never seen a hedgehog in real life so I find this fascinating. Thanks for getting under the rose bush to photograph it.

What a great story, I love your little hedgehog!

Do you see them often? In France you tend to see them mostly by the side of roads, when they get run over by cars. How sad!

It is very rare to take hedgehogs in photograph.

You days before all the night or you seek the cat

I have never seen a hedgehog before. I am surprised that the kitty didn't try to get it -- but VERY glad he didn't. Great shot!!!
