Nightime Visitors

We have at least one neighbour who visits us after dark and sometimes we have two neighbours visiting. My next door neighbour often provides these visitors with supper. The supper plate provided me with the perfect opportunity to introduce Billy to you. Billy was named by my neighbour, but I suspect that Billy is a girl.

Last night conditions felt just right and I had a feeling that I might get a photo of Billy, so I set my camera to night vision and hoped for the best. I know that Billy has been coming at a regular time for the last week or two, so at the appropriate hour I tiptoed out of the house and peered over the fence.

There he/she was about two yards away from me. I wish I had a better camera.

I willed him/her to look my way

Soon supper was finished and there was movement

What a thrill! Just one yard away from me.

I feel so privileged to have these animals visit.

What do you think, girl or boy?

    1. Hello Araignee, it's a badger. A shy mostly nocturnal animal. We're very lucky to have them visiting our garden.
