A lovely crisp shot of this endearing wee creature, and beautifully timed as it sits there with its brekkie in hand (or should that be paw?). And to capture the reflection as well! Nice one, Sylvia.

Can't get enough of these Sylvia.

That splash of colour from the apple really lifts this beautiful image and makes it just that little bit special - superb work - that's what archives are for Wink

Beautiful capture! It's amazing that were able to get close enough to get a good shot of it without it running/swimming away. I've heard that water voles are very shy mammals.

Spent 4 hours sitting very still in the stream Sam (wearing wellies of course!) with camera and tripod set up. In very good company too AND on a lovely warm July day Wink
