Oh! Nice capture Eyal!
Great portrait of an Hedgehog.
All qualities of a good photograph. The head seems a little soft, but still a great work. Thanks.

What a cute little beastie, the ears make it look so different to our native one with tiny ears, the whole gives a real feel for the dry enviroment it is in .Nice one.

I like very much the sidelong glance this cute animal is showing on your photo. It makes it a very lively shot. Useful contibution too, because it has a different look with these long ears than our classical hedgehog (erinaceus europaeus). Very well catched, Eyal.

Eyal, I always appreciate the "hunt" as you have given us this interesting little mammal in its natural habitat. Great capture, Great POV! Well done and thanx for posting his little gem!

Unbelievable! I've always associated hedgehogs with damp leafy gardens and hedgerows. If someone told me of a long eared hedgehog that lives in the desert I'd think they were havin' a laugh. Blimey! Now I've seen everyfink. Nice one Eyal!

CUTE, Cute, cute, and a new one for me. We have only one species, and it is tears ago since I saw one. I just love this guy, Ayel.

Boker tov, I guess I missed this one photo, just like I miss this little creature from back home in Europe, I use to pet (read ,,torture,, rather than pet) them every summer when we found them in the parks and orchards nearby my town ...
A bit more sharpness in the eye wouldnt hurt since he is a pretty mellow subject and dont run all that fast ...
Shalom! (ohh, my Ivrit comes from the hotel industry I am employed by ...)

Very nice picture.
Its good to see a picture of an rare animal.
Thanks for sharing.
