Water Vole

By Ade_Osman    
Yet another water vole shot from the BWC I'm afraid, I just like the way the foliage frames the vole in this one. Again taken in hellish conditions light wise with an ISO of 1600, but given the conditions I'm still fairly happy with it.

Just about sobering up now after last nights celebrations, although I've got a bit of gut-rot and cross-eyedness after drinking too much of the old Somerset Apple Juice. Each years the same and each year I say I'm not doing that again, I'll never learn Grin

Happy New year to all, think I'll go off and get wifey to nurse my banging headache now Sad

Trust you not to be able to lay off the Somerset scrumpy, Ade Wink
This little fella certainly isn't suffering the after-effects of over-indulgence, he has wonderful bright eyes Smile Carol

Nice shot mate, despite conditions. I am now set up with cam nets and waterproofing and look forward to hiding alongside my local lakes. Sorry about your head, should be tea total like me. At this moment I am enjoying a big cup of coffee heavily laced with Brandy, 50:50. I have a sniffle, lol.
Happy New Year fellow Canon use and many more to come.
