Last weekend I visited a french friend living in the Lorraine. Main target was seeing badgers near their dens.
Old war forts harboring Barbastelle bats in winter, now just had summer roosts of greater horseshoe bats. But they are still very beautiful to visit.

After many hours of waiting near a badger den in the evening, systematically raising the ISO level of my camera every half hour, we got to see la mama and her three month old bambini as well as dad.
In the dark, they often came as close as 10-20m.
