Yes, I’m into a loop, stuck on one species and gathering an absurd number of photos of our local rat population. The long hot summer has clearly played a part, and with the water low in the pond the exposed banks (which are soft and easy to burrow) make a more or less perfect habitat. That, and the constant duck-feeding that goes on which means as well as fallen seed there are such delicacies as rice grains on offer. They’re doing well and are now quite hard not to see.
As with yesterday, this is a small selection. More shots (but nothing approaching all the shots) are in the Falmer Rats 2013 gallery.
Camera note: all shots taken with the Canon 7D and EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L USM IS lens.
