[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken in our "Little Studio" where we seem to spend an awful lot of time creating illusions for people. Here the illusion is of a little Harvest Mouse sat on something - in the main photo the photographer has a mouse sat on a dried poppy head, in the inset is one I took a little earlier whilst setting up with the mouse sat on a red tulip. In both cases the finished image will be a cute little mouse sat on something natural, isolated against a nice out of focus background.

The reality is a tangle of wires, lights stands, "Really Useful" Boxes everywhere, an ugly block of wood crudely drilled so you can stick things into it ... and the crowning glory, a brightly coloured childs paddling pool so the mice don't escape!

That's what we do ...
