Meet hedgehog the scavenger (graphic content!)
Lens: Vivitar S1 70-210mm Komine Camera: Pentax K200D

Our house has a glazed patio. This evening I went there to do some reading and noticed something moving right next to the glass wall on the other side. It turned out to be a hedgehog, which obviously did not notice me through the glass even though I was quite near. It was dragging a dead bird, which I assume had died flying to the glass wall. The hedgehog began eating the dead bird and I grabbed my K200D and the 70-210mm Vivitar S1 that was attached to it. Unfortunately I'm really really bad at manual focusing. These pictures were shot through the glass wall. The content is a bit graphic and probably not for everybody. Did I mention I suck at manual focus?

Here the hedgehog is dragging the dead bird.

The face looked a bit fox-like actually.

One picture is accidentally in focus.


I always thought the hedgehogs eat insects, worms and such and not bird meat by the pound.

Gotta admit it's got guts. Literally.

The smell of fresh meat seemed to attract a wasp too, but the hedgehog wasn't very happy about it.

This is all mine - mine! Not sure if it saw me.

Not much was left of the bird after about an hour.

These photographs suck big time, but I found it quite interesting and unique to see the hedgehog scavenging a dead bird. Have to admit I never knew they do that.
