Going through a rough day? With so much havoc and chaos going on in our world at the moment, I think it’s best for all of us to get a break every now and then by turning it all off and enjoying peaceful and beautiful things.
Like these adorable harvest mice for example.
These wonderfully cute pictures were snapped by Miles Herbert, a British photographer who owns Captivelight, which holds workshops and photography classes for people who are interested in capturing photos of “birds of prey, reptiles, frogs and other beasties.”
“These harvest Mice were photographed in an indoor studio,” Miles told Bored Panda. “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,” added Herbert.
The cute tiny mice received a treat each during the sessions, the stamens and the nectar of the flowers they sit upon are their favorite snack. It’s a win-win situation, the mice get to munch on their favorite food while Miles and his clients get to capture phenomenal close-up shots.. It’s not hard to become completely mesmerized by these petite critters, frolicking among the tulips and sitting cozily with the petals.
The photographs came out amazing, vividly colorful and they’re destined to put a smile on your face and warm your heart, even on a bad day. Scroll down to take a look at the cuteness overload yourself, and let us know what you think in the comments below!
