Last week, I was fortunate enough to attend a small mammal workshop – and we were treated to an array of harvest mice, hedgehogs, mink, and voles. It was lovely to shoot a hedgehog (which usually are in hibernation at this time of year). The hog was ‘borrowed’ from a local rescue centre, and is due for release this spring. It was good and round, and fat – a great stage for a hungry animal.
The Harvest Mice were tiny, cute as a button, and jet propelled fast – the hit rate was low, but when we got shots, they were fabulous.
