Hi Mike! Nice shot. I uploaded one this morning but I like yours better. It's sharper (I forgot the tripod). Glad you describe it as a woodmouse as my wife was panicking in case mine was a baby rat. Well done. click!!

EPZ is a dangerous place to be for this little rodent... (with all the owls hanging around.) This little one could end up being a late night munchie for one of them!

Great capture and lighting. And clear as well.

Cracking shot Mike, only you would get close enough to use the 100mm Macro!
The detail in the large version is stunning, outstanding work as always.

Great shot, especially as it's a wild one. Nice to see something a bit different on here. The flash has done a cracking job.

Many thanks for all your comments :o)

We were astonished at how friendly these guys were. Abi shone a torch onto them to help me focus & I took the image. I assumed that when the flash went off they would be gone for good....but they just sat, ate & posed & allowed me to get to within about a metre of them before showing signs of beating a retreat. I've since heard them in the hedge but not seen them again.....I'm keeping a watchful eye out for them though.

All the best,

I'm quite impressed that it was still there when you returned with your camera! I had less luck with short tailed field voles the other evening. Went back with a camera after having seen loads earlier in the day and..... Sigh! Click. Ali.
