Pigmy Shrew

By MariaElaine
I spotted this tiny Pigmy Shrew at the Messingham Nature Reserve. I have a 3oomm prime lens and 1.4 on my Canon 7D. The Shrew was moving around very quickly and hard to spot in my lens, however I managed this one lucky shot.

Cracking shot.The last time I saw a pygmy shrew many years ago it was trying to pinch my breadbait and was swearing as the piece of bread was too big to go down the tunnel in the grass he had made.Cute but deadly.
