[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Harvest Mouse sitting in a tulip flower. The mice love climbing in to the flowers to get at the nectar and sometimes curl up inside for a quick sleep.

Harvest Mice (Micromys minutus) are the smallest of our UK rodents and are well known for their prehensile tails that they use as an extra anchor point when climbing around. They generally weigh between 4g and 6g with a body length of around 5 to 6 cm and a tail of around the same length.

Sad to see this place so quiet ... Progress eh?
