Having one of those days? With so much craziness going on out there at the moment, sometimes what we all need is a break, time to switch off from it all and just look at some pretty and happy things. Like these adorable harvest mice for example.
These super cute photos were taken by Miles Herbert, a British photographer who runs Captivelight, holding workshops and photography tuition for people who are interested in capturing “birds of prey, reptiles, frogs and other beasties.”
“These harvest Mice were photographed in an indoor studio,” Miles told GIGGAG. “We provide a service for photographers looking for high impact pictures of the animals, and using a purpose built studio means that we are not weather dependent. There is also an option to photograph animals outside if the client wishes, our other specialty is frogs!”
“Nearly all the animals we photograph are captive bred, the mice are bred to release into the wild at a local nature reserve – we prefer to use captive bred animals rather then disturbing wild populations, and captive bred animals are more sustainable.”
The mice get a treat during the sessions, as they just love to eat the stamens and the nectar of the flowers, while Miles and his clients get to watch their cute little subjects going about their business while taking great close-up shots. It’s a win-win situation for all involved, and you can’t fail to be enchanted by these tiny little critters, frolicking among the tulips and nestling cozily amongst the petals.
The photographs are beautifully taken, vividly colorful and are sure to put a smile on your face, even on a bad day. Scroll down to check out the cuteness overload for yourself, and let us know what you the comments below!
