Another wild Water Vole (arvicola terrestris) from my vigil in the streama week or so back. This little guy/gal is munching on a piece of apple which we had put out to tempt him/her and fortunately it did the trick. Like the others in the series, this image is full frame with no cropping.

Settings: F/5.6 1/250sec ISO400 manual@500mm tripod

Thank you so much for your C&Cs on my F-16 upload - really appreciated Smile

Another excellent shot of the water vole, captured here in such excellent detail and in such good lighting. Love the 'pose' and I like the catch of light in its eye. Super photography, Sylvia.
