Silent Slumber...

By adderman
One of a few dormice that are still a little sleepy after their long winter. I have the privilege of being licensed to monitor their population here in Kent and England and so took the opportunity to get this image before wrapping him back up into his nest box.

Have a good day folks.

Brett - I just keep comming back to this charming image. Yeah - ok some would criticise a slight loss of dof in the forground, but really it makes no odds. It's just a simple, beautiful and rare glimpse of nature that makes you feel warm inside.

Have my award - if for nothing more than having the forsight to capture such a sight and to share with us here.
