Having one of those days? With so much craziness happening at the moment, on occasion what we all need is a pause, time to switch off from all of it and just have a look at some pretty and happy things. Like these adorable harvest mice for example.
These amazing pictures have been taken via Miles Herbert, a British photographer who runs Captivelight, holding workshops and photography tuition for individuals who are interested into capturing “birds of prey, reptiles, frogs and other beasties.”
“These harvest Mice were photographed in an indoor studio,” Miles told us. “We provide a service for photographers looking for high impact pictures of the animals, and using a purpose-built studio means that we are not weather dependent. There is also an option to photograph animals outside if the client wishes, our other specialty is frogs!”
“Nearly all the animals we photograph are captive bred, the mice are bred to release into the wild at a local nature reserve – we prefer to use captive-bred animals rather than disturbing wild populations, and captive bred animals are more sustainable.”
The mice get a treat all through the classes, as they simply love to eat the stamens and the nectar of the flowers, while Miles and his clients get to look at their lovely little subjects going their business while taking high-quality close-up shots. It’s a win-win situation for everyone included, and you can’t fail to be enchanted by these tiny little critters, frolicking among the tulips and nestling cozily amongst the petals.
The pictures are awesomely taken, vividly colorful and will surely put a smile on your face, even on a horrific day. Scroll down to check out the cuteness all for yourself and let us know what you think in the comments below!
