European Badger (Meles meles)
Nisa, Portugal

Last November, on a rainy night, near the town of Nisa, in Alentejo, a Badger died on the road. It was but one among many that are run over by automobiles, throughout the country. This is a bizarre way of photographing an European Badger, when for long I have endeavoured to photograph them in their daily routines, looking for food in the dehesa, where they are very shy, shunning even the most peaceful approaches.
