This week we are celebrating our prickly garden friend -the hedgehog.
A while ago I spotted this little guy. Now it was clearly a little disoriented as he kept appearing during the day, having a wander through my garden.
These prickly little mammals are nocturnal and are usually only spotted from dusk and into the night. So as you can imagine I had never managed to get a photograph.
On this particular day it strolled through my garden in the middle of the afternoon and then curled up for a snooze on my flower bed, allowing me to capture this image.
