My adorable and slighty bonkers Russian Dwarf hamster, Mischa.

I set her inside the little cardboard basket, the background is a sheet of wrapping paper (which she peed on and subsequently ruined.) The lighting is from a flash gun bounced off my ceiling.

Edit: Crop, rotate, brightness/contrast using levels, slight gaussian blur, denoise, sharpen, bar borders and a Hell of a lot of patience!

OMG, how cute is that?! I might have gone for a less busy background but hamsters and props are a smile-inducing combination.

I would have liked a tighter not too symmetrical crop for more impact. 6
