Best Award Winning Wildlife Photography of the Year 2017
Crepuscular Contentment (Derbyshire), by Andrew Parkinson, British Wildlife Photography awards, winner, animal behaviour category
In 15 years of working with badgers, I’ve never seen a badger sit out in the open to have a scratch. I was sat concealed behind a tree and downwind so it was especially nice that the badger had his back to me, demonstrating just how inconspicuous and inconsequential my presence was.
