This is a photo I re-came across a few weeks ago, taken in the summer, which seems such a long time ago now *sigh*. The sun was beginning to set, and the birds had gone to roost. The mice seemed to wait patiently for the birds to leave before they got their turn on the feeders. On the other hand maybe they waited impatiently, tapping their feet and cleaning their whiskers tetchily, whilst bemoaning their place in the 'pecking order'.
Anyway.... the wind was quite strong and blowing from behind the mouse, so as I approached it couldn't smell me, the light was fading quickly, and so everything was in my favour. There again, perhaps it knew I was there and just wasn't going to give up its supper for some bloomin' maniac 'tog'. I was amazed at how close it allowed me, and didn't even seem bothered when I started using flash.... I was really pleased with the results, but there again I am rather easily pleased....
Hope you like him/her...
Thanks for looking
