Unbelievably adorable little creature. Truly wonderful capture. I hope this little guy was able to escape Monty's clutches.

I love this image, sharp and a crazy idea of getting a mouse to hold on to the flower bud. Congrats.

Same photographer See all

Behind The Lens

Location
This was captured in our back yard, after our cat Monty brought the mouse inside. The mouse escaped, and the chase ensued!
Time
Around midday, when mousey's like to climb flowers.
Lighting
All natural lighting.
Equipment
I used a Canon 6D and my trusty 200mm ƒ2.8L lens.
Inspiration
Action and opportunity. Have always wanted to capture a cat and mouse chase, this was the day to do it.
Editing
A little bit of colour grading, but not much else.
In my camera bag
I mainly shoot astro, so a few fast lenses (ƒ1.4-2.8) and a couple of Canon 6Ds.
Feedback
When you have the opportunity, capture it.
