Water Vole Suckling Youngster

By Wanilson
A blast from the past, I was reminded of this shot taken in 2013 by a good friend of mine when I met him to photograph Peregrines yesterday,thank you Mr Bradley, when I originally processed this shot, I had to resize it to 1500 pixels anything more than that it was unviewable, I've re-processed it and resized it to 2500 pixels, it is a shot more about right time right place than technical ability, and I'm pleased to say I think my processing skills are slightly better now Smile

Great shot! Seeing this reminds me of a tv program I used to watch when I was a child, called "Tales Of The River Bank", filmed using real animals and narrated by
the late Johnny Morris. A Water Vole played the character of Roderick Rat, who was of course, a water rat. There was also a Hampster named Hammy. If you're interested, some of the episodes are available to watch on YouTube.

Love your picture though. Very well done.
