Another Water Vole (Arvicola terrestris) from last August. It is not often one catches a glimpse of a Water Vole's tail and I was surprised at how long it was.
Would have preferred more space in front of the head but this is virtually full frame.
Settings: F/5.6 1/40sec ISO100 AV@500mm tripod

Many thanks for your kind comments and clicks on my AC Cobra upload - really appreciated.

Congratulations on a very well deserved GEA Sylvia, very well captured, such a delightful little creature, how envious am I, they are in my area but have yet to see one, I have heard the odd splash, perhaps they are avoiding me.
