Caught in the act! This cute little Wood Mouse(Apodemus sylvaticus) was busy raiding the seeds from the bird feeder near our kitchen. When I saw him, he just froze and gave my wife enough time to fetch my camera. I think he has been living in my garage! Taken at Birchington,Kent,U.K.

I started my working life in a press agency called Central Press Photos. After learning my trade in Fleet Street, I moved into more commercial and architectual work. I have also spent many a saturday chasing from one wedding to another. These days I photograph anything that takes my eye.

    he is cute Geoff, it’s when they run i get scared.x

  • They are lovely little things Catherine. I don’t mind these wood mice because they stay away from the house! They only live for about 18-20 months in the wild, so good luck to him! :-)x

    Super capture Geoff – looks like he has been feeding well over the cold spell!

  • Thanks Bob, yes they only eat seeds, so the wild bird seed was perfect for him!
