This is actually quite a hard-hitting image; the mouse almost looks peaceful/resting... quite sad.

Excellent image indeed

Very different indeed. Looks like an animation, of a sleepy little mouse. With the big bad cat in the background. This is really outstanding.....Sandy

This is a stunningly emotive image. Perhaps not the traditional, but certainly a cerebral 'leading line', enhanced by your use of focus and colour.

Fantastic.

Great use of colour on this shot. Seems a little strange that the animal that is dead has the most life in the picture, although thats what appeals. Great composition and quality work.
