[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is hedgehog season in Britain, and this nervous individual was encountered about 10pm feeding on worms and slugs on my local golf course, in the middle of a fairway. Picked up in a powerful torch beam, I used the 1-million candle power lamp as my light source, and got down, dirty and wet with my Canon Powershot on macro. He was perfectly happy to pose for some time, only rolling into a tight ball when my dog pushed her nose into his prickles!

HI Geoff,
Nice shot.
I hope you didn't play golf with him while he curled into a ball ;)
I like all the spiky bits, the grass and the hedgehog.
Nice colours.
Well done.

what a wonderful picture on the hedgehog. and a novel way of lighting it up. works really well.

PS what were you doing on a golf course at 10pm at night with a dog and 1 million candle torch? - dog walking?
