A Garden Visiter


Looking out into the back garden today, Tuesday, I happened to spot this little chap. First time I have seen any wildlife in the garden, except for the blackbirds and starlings, since we moved here alomst six years ago. Just enough time to grab the camera and run off a few shots, leaving it all down to the camera to select the settings.

Make a change for the inanimate objects I usually take photographs off. Just sharpened and cropped otherwise as was.

Is this a hedgehog, Les? It sure is curious about you. smile What a sharp and focused find for this day.
Les Auld: Indeed it is Ginnie, I had just interrupted his foraging. Thanks for the comment.
Was this in the daytime Les? I only ask because if hedgehogs are out in the day it is not usually a good thing.
Les Auld: It was Bill, my wife said the same thing but he seemed to be fit and quite active, thanks for the comment.

A different image form you. Les! Sometimes, the presets on the camera work just fine and that is shown well here. I always fire off a few "autos" with a view that if my ham-fisted manual shots failed, at least I have something! smile
Les Auld: I must admit I often forget to check my camera settings so the end result sometimes comes as a surprise, thanks for the comment.
For a change from your usual type of subject Les you have made a very good job of this, just don't put out milk for him/her, they don't like it apparently.
Les Auld: So I believe Brian, he disappeared after having his portrait taken, thanks for the comment.
Mrs Tiggywinkle I do believe. Baeutiful capture of these usually shy creatures. Apparently cat food is best for them.
Les Auld: Thanks Pat, both for the comment and the advice.

Les Auld: Thanks Louis, appreciate the comment.
