Return of the Wood Mouse - (Apodemus sylvaticus), also known as Long Tailed Mouse or Fieldmouse. This little chap has returned to my feeder, this time with a mate, but I haven't managed to get a decent shot of them together yet. I was intrigued by the reflection in the eyes.
Settings:- F/5.6 1/80sec ISO800, 420mm manual handheld

Many thanks for your continued support - so much appreciated as always Smile

Great shot! I uploaded a close-up of a fieldmouse doing the same last month. Couldn't get as close as you have though! Well done! Claire

Top marks for this fine shot, Sylvia. Excellent eyes detail considering it was taken hand-held with a relatively slow shutter speed.
