These super cute pictures were done by Miles Herbert, a British photographer who runs Captivelight, holding workshops and photography tuition for anyone interested in capturing “birds of prey, reptiles, frogs and other beasties.”
“These harvest Mice were photographed in an indoor studio,” Miles said. “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 than disturbing wild populations, and captive bred animals are more sustainable.”
The mice get a treat during the sessions: they love to eat the stamens and the nectar of the flowers while Miles and his clients get to take great close-up shots.
The pictures are beautifully taken and vividly colorful. They will put a smile on your face, even if you have a terrible day. Scroll down to admire the cuteness overload for yourself!
