Badger Sow and Cub

Badger Sow and Cub

The energetic and playful nature of a badger cub requires a patient parent. This mother badger tolerated her offspring even as they nipped and bit her ears. I viewed the family for several days and never observed the mother scalding the cubs. Phillips County, Montana, June 2018. Canon 5D IV, 500mm f/4 IS II + 1.4x, ISO 640, 1/1250 second @ f/5.6, 4569 x 3046 pixels.
