Can't help with an ID Carol but as always I'm amazed at how close you can get, they always fly off whenever I come stumbling along.

Wow - those eyes! Really amazes me how you manage to get so close without them flying off Carol. Another brilliant image. Smile

When I was tiny I got told off by my mum for saying I had an "itchy snitch". This just reminded me of it.

A lovely moff, Carol, and very well spotted, it does look rather like it would be difficult to see Wink Two fine captures, but think V2's my fave Smile

Glad you got the moff before it flew off, Carol. Excellent doff on this inoffensive looking critter who caught you offguard, with its offbeat snout, offering you a photo opportunity.

What a beautiful and sleek moff! It looks like a striped cigar Grin

Two excellent shots, Carol, and I like how it's front legs are hanging off so weirdly in V2 Grin
