Too cute! Congrats on the ribbon!

How sweet! I know mice and rats are considered vermin, but I have always thought them cute. Too bad the ads below your photo on the DPC is for exterminators.....

Congrats on the ribbon,lovely stuff.

Wunderbar! And perfectly framed with the green foreground bokeh. Congratulations on the well deserved recognition for this delightful photograph!

Those are such sweet looking mice . .

Many thanks to all the DPC community.
In our small garden here in Breda, Holland, my wife and I are blessed with a very active wild life.
We have many different birds, 2 or 3 mice families, in summer a toad und his offsprings and unfortunately also a nuisance mole.
But back to the mice. They are extremely cute and fortunately the do not come into the house. When they have babies (we expect it will happen soon) then they are too many of them, I have developed a perfect “relocation” system. I catch them alive, with no harm done, and bring them to the nearest forest.
They eat happily from our bird feeder and you can be as close as 1 meter. We will not harm them and they got to trust us.
So making this photo was rather easy. They almost seem to pose and watch what I was doing. That I got two of them at the same time was a bonus.
This would also work well with the next challenge, “focal point”, but I guess it is too soon to have a similar photo again.

In most entries I was looking for more "urban," but here the stone is enough. Such a good photo.

I see this one as the Blue ribbon winner. While it does not really show that is is urban, it is a great shot.

Excellent fine and capture. The stones over their nest tie it well into the challenge

03/19/2011 12:47:35 PM
I like the bokeh surrounding the sharply focussed eyes. Great take

Cute. Love this.

ooh, here is a big cute- factor!

03/17/2011 08:36:15 PM
They look to me more like the country mice. The city ones are NOT cute.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/17/2011 03:18:55 PM
Surprise!!! great catch
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/16/2011 10:09:42 PM
Absolutely adorable! Not seeing much "urban" in this, though.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2011 08:02:06 PM
Haha! look at those ears.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2011 12:43:34 PM
Adorable! How did you find them and get such a great picture? Nicely done.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/15/2011 12:33:29 PM
That,s a cracker of a shot.

Excellent work, great dof.

Oh, this is just tooo cute.

They look ready to party... There's urban... and Nature... so it works well for this challenge. 7

03/14/2011 08:38:04 PM
Love the perspective. Great exposure, and the soft focus around the edges works well; however, I do not feel that this photo meets the requirements of the challenge at hand. There is no "urban" setting here.

Has a high cute rating - I can't help thinking these little mice are going to carry you all the way to the top
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2011 07:31:19 AM
brilliant! not very urban but really well captured.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2011 04:40:36 AM
AMAZING
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2011 04:11:30 AM
This is really neat. They almost look fake, because they're actually facing the camera. Usually when you see a mouse it's running from you. The foliage framing the shot is also a great touch.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2011 01:17:30 AM
Oh how adorable, got to be a ribbon.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
03/14/2011 12:25:33 AM
Blue ribbon. Great capture. I had the same idea, but didn't have the rodents. Even then, to capture two critters is an amazing accomplishment.
