My year??s membership of the British Wildlife Centre ended today but, as luck would have it, this coincided with their winter Members?? Day so I was able to enjoy one last day photographing the animals at the centre. They always put on extra keeper talks for members?? days and one of today??s highlights was a talk about Harvest Mice. I took my new 100mm macro lens with me and this turned out to be an inspired choice as it allowed me to get really close to them. I also used it to photograph a water vole who sitting on a small island in its enclosure happily munching away, completely unfazed by me leaning over the barrier. While this particular lens may not be an obvious choice for wildlife photography but in this setting it worked a treat, allowing me to capture some rather cute faces!
