This badger appears to give a smile and wave to camera as a photographer catches him scratching his belly.

Keith Elcombe, 49, watched the animal sit down for a leisurely scratch and was then shocked when he spotted the camera and seemed to pose for a shot.

It's not the first time Toby the badger, 13, has been a star as he has featured in a number of wildlife documentaries, and even appeared in a scene of BBC One's A Very English Scandal which starred Hugh Grant.
