OK, it's a studio shot, and I would much prefer to photograph them in natural surroundings, but I would probably never have the opportunity, as they are tiny little things, fast-moving and elusive - and behave like hooligans!

Not tame, as such, but used to humans to a limited extent. There were at least a dozen of the tiny tearaways charging around their large crate or resting up inside toilet roll cardboard tubes - about 5/6 of them could fit, so it gives you an idea of how small they are. Great fun to watch.

A bit less like a studio shot, perhaps...

QUOTED IMAGE

I'm not a fan of mice, but that one is really cute. :lol: Very nice image.

Thanks to all for the comments and "Likes". Although I took over 300 shots to get my money's worth during the session and produced a short list of around 80, I shall only keep about 12. Most of the 300 are spot-on for focus etc. but, well, when you've seen one Harvest Mouse, you've pretty much seen 'em all, delightful though they, and their antics, are!

I tend to think that they've got maybe 3 things that go through their heads constantly..

FOOD.
MAKE MORE OF ME.
OH LOOK, IS THAT FOOD, LET'S SEE.

Yes, indeed, Jeff. There was much pushing and shoving when food (budgerigar seed mix) was offered, but never any aggression, and if kept in captivity, with the warmer temperatures, they will breed all year round, though less so in winter. The...excess, if you like...are released to enjoy a short, but hectic, life in the wild.
