This Harvest mouse and his friends made a Macro lesson hard due to them never staying still!!
Had a time out session yesterday doing Macro work for the first time with Wild Arena...wonderful experience, and as I had won their Photo of the month got 50 off the lesson..Brilliant!


Sorry not been around for awhile as Ted has needed my attention, and he had to have another bone marrow done last week..painful to say the least, so please understand I will be around when I can..and have some great shots of the "Battle in the Park" that Ann has been showing so well.

V2 another Harvest mouse..a cutie too
