Horace and Doris

We have two regular little visitors to the hedgehog feeding station, a 'dinner date' every single night :)

The other week, Len managed to catch them with this photo:
I just LOVE that one of them is peering right at Len, apparently it was very curious and not in the least bit shy. So sweet how it has its paw up on the raised paving stone as if to say 'Where's the knife and fork then?'. And, if you look closely, you can see the very tip of its little pink tongue as well. That's what I CALL cute :)

I'd like to play over at Annie's 'Friday Smiles' - why not come along?

Psst, we've been away as said, but it was a lovely break in Germany - and no real outside camping involved. More on Sunday's Snippets :)

Aw! Those hedgehogs are so lovely! We don't get any around here. I used to have a friend in the UK who had hedgehogs in her garden and fed them regularly. I think a lot of urban hedgehogs depend on people feeding and sheltering them. So well done you! Horace and Doris, such cute names!
Blessings,
Lisca

What a fabulous photo of your nighttime visitors Di, well captured by Len. Glad you had a good trip. x

Alison C said...

What a treat, you are so lucky to see them so close. So glad you enjoyed your trip and it wasn't camping. I have vowed never to do that again!

Princess Judy Palmer said...

What little sweeties. I had no idea that hedgies had wee masks on their faces.

Angela Radford said...

They are so sweet, We have a small animal hospital just down the road from us and they always have lots of hedgehogs in there, they seem good at getting into trouble maybe because they go hunting for food but your two look as though they have found a safe place. Have a great weekend, Angela x

Cara said...

Fabulous photo, they are so sweet. Glad you enjoyed your break. Cara x

Sandy said...

They are super cute. Since I've never seen one in person I just checked, and nope, they aren't found here in North America (or South America, either. We have possums and armadillos, neither of which is cute.

Darnell J Knauss said...

Oh, my gosh, Di, what a TREAT!!!!!!!!!!! After all these years of Spike being so elusive, I'm thrilled that Horace and Doris (love it!!) are being very social and allowing Len to take photographs! They top my imaginary hamster Big Time!! I'm changing all my travel plans so I can spend one night at your house and see them up close and in person!! (Glad that Germany went well!) Hugs, Darnell

Kathleen said...
