As I stood watching this mouse it scampered across the path, selected a leaf and scampered back to the nest hole many times.
The pic is slightly out of focus, I think I was too close!

Well the foreground is pretty sharp Jeff, maybe just a case of the auto focus locking on to the wrong part of the image, like back focussing etc. I don't care how much one has paid for a camera and sing it's praises, it'll still do this unless you can put the focus point where you want it manually, and most do have this feature. also most, and one of mine doesn't, have what is called a back button. All this said, it's a fantastic record shot Jeffers.

Well done! Rosie and Fritz spend hours a day hunting these.

You know how it is when you are setting up a home. The work never seems to end and you have to be careful in your decorating so that everything fits. Great catch. You have a good eye and fast trigger finger.

you are quicker than myself. I usually see them as they are running away

What a very exciting shot, Jeff. It is always great fun to try to capture such difficult targets :-) You did it beautifully.

How awesome that you got to watch this behavior. Very cool and no matter if the focus isn't perfect. Watching nature in action takes precedence.

Cute as far as mice go and don't forget to throw some sunflower seeds in there for the winter months!
