Garden friend

Posted by ursulakatariina (Uusikaupunki, Finland) on 15 December 2011 in Animal & Insect.

Todays picture was going to be the Samuel Beckett bridge, but then just when I had uploaded the photo here, a new friend showed his face in my garden and I just had to change the photo.
One day it seemed like the birds had been eating much more than usually, but now I'm starting to think maybe it was him and not the birds...
The bridge will be shown sometime later... :)

Nice to see you! I hope you enjoy seeing what I saw earlier.
Please, leave a comment so I know you have been here.

I got a colour spotlight, see it here.

Please read this.

It is living food to cats. Cute guy.

@Jypyä Pop: Or maybe he has eaten all the cats here - I've not seen any yet. :)

I like rats!

@CElliottUK: So do I! But the artist doesn't and that's why I can't let the rats in the house...

Yes, I agree, this chubby fellow has probably been the reason for your loss of "crops" :-) He looks quite healthy and happy here ;-) This is a great and VERY cute image, Ursulakatariina! Cheers ;-)

@Denny Jump Photo: Thank you, Denny. After I posted this photo, I actually saw whole family of rats running around the garden - I just wish they don't expect me to feed them all... :)

@Oiva: It's a rat, medium sized rat, but still a rat. Thank you.

The Mouse from Glasgow, United Kingdom

Looks fairly clean and tidy for a wild one, hope your not built on thousands of them.
Great spot and capture.

@The Mouse: Yeah, it looks much better than some I've seen... Oh, I do hope there aren't thousands of them!!!
Thank you.
