  1. Having a cuddle with Dylan the gorgeous fox cub (captive-bred!) during work experience at Exotic Zoo in Telford. I want to work with wildlife rescue in the future and it was an amazing experience!

  2. This is a selfie of my hand-reared Woodpigeon Bertie and I, extremely hard to get as Woodpigeons are very nervous of anything strange, like phones being held up for selfies!!

  3. I told him to go and top up the bird feeder.
    I didn’t know he was going to be adopted by a fledgling !

  4. Not one of my biggest, but still quite proud of it. Taken in May this year at Poachers Hideaway Lincolnshire.

    1. That’s an impressive tortoise. Considering how long those giant tortoises live, I wouldn’t be surprised if that one met Darwin back in the 19th century. Thanks for the photo!

  5. Mrs Duck brings her family to be fed every morning! She nested on my pond and has 5 young ducklings. Difficult to take a selfie with a proper camera!

  6. It’s pretty impossible to get a selfie with the Chiltern Red Kites – they’re fast. Very, very fast. But just to show you the range of birds that eat your suet and insect nuggets, a Red Kite plus gardenwildlifedirect food photo.

  7. This is the female hedgehog who visits the garden trundling by my foot. Her mate is bigger and lighter in colour.

  8. our nightly hedgehog visitor getting a rare treat from us , there are two pass through every evening

  9. Here is my squirrel on a lap selfie! The cute little squirrel was so friendly he came and sat on my lap and ate a monkey nut! Hope you all enjoy the picture. From Colette

  10. For my birthday my husband paid for me to have a Meet the Meerkats experience. Not technically a selfie because he had the camera, I was told te keep my fingers below the rim of the bowl if I didn’t want them mistaken for food.

  11. I tried to get a young wood pigeon in the photo, which I have been feeding and giving it water for 6 weeks now – but I have not got too close to it since I taught it to fly as I don’t want it to get too tame.

  12. Here is a photograph of a Robin that I tamed to take sultanas from my mouth. I had the camera in one hand and so it is a pretty good shot. Lovely experience.

  13. Hello 🙂 I have sent you a picture of me holding a lovely little hedgehog who comes into my garden.
    I hope this is the type of picture you are looking for, if there are any problems please let me know.
    Kind Regards
