napping

    Newer Older

    Mr Vole, my nearest neighbour, takes a nap in unseasonably warm sunshine on my garden seat. Truth is, he must be very old, and, as I can testify, napping becomes a preoccupation for the aged.
    I stayed long enough for him to realise I was there, whereupon he hopped away into a safer place.

    ... But see more recent photos for a sad epilogue.

      To be perfectly correct, that Mr Vole is a fieldmouse and not a real vole.
      Sorry to be boring !

      Not boring, I welcome your observation, thanks, but ...

      ... shorter tail, snub nose , smaller eyes, teeth set differently, characteristic burrows, bigger than a field mouse ...otherwise you could be right, they are quite similar.
