Keep Still will you?

By Lillian  
This Harvest mouse and his friends made a Macro lesson hard due to them never staying still!!
Had a time out session yesterday doing Macro work for the first time with Wild Arena...wonderful experience, and as I had won their Photo of the month got 50 off the lesson..Brilliant!

Sorry not been around for awhile as Ted has needed my attention, and he had to have another bone marrow done last week..painful to say the least, so please understand I will be around when I can..and have some great shots of the "Battle in the Park" that Ann has been showing so well.

V2 another Harvest mouse..a cutie too

Those bright little eyes are wonderful. Two superb images, even though I am no fan of mice in any shape or form. Doesn't stop me admiring such great images!

Sorry Ted continues to have such a rough time and hope things work out better soon.

This is just wonderful as is Mark's and just wish I had the chance to be there and experience something like this - just superb images and have been wondering where you have been and hope all goes well for you. My sister went through it last year, so have an understanding of what you are going through..Jo

Good to see you back Lillian,and totally understandable with your absence.
Have to say,this must be the ''cutiest'' mouse I have seen.
And I must have seen hundreds of ugly ones when I worked on the railways !!
