Another Water Vole (Arvicola terrestris) which appeared during my 4 hour vigil in the stream last week. This is a full frame capture and the Water Vole was sitting high and dry on a tussock of grass at the edge of the stream, munching on a blade of grass, held in one hand.
Settings: F/5.6 1/160sec ISO500 manual@500mm tripod
Best viewed large if you have a moment
Many thanks for your C&Cs on my Flying Fortress upload - very much appreciated as always.
