Autumn Scene

I saw the photo below in the Daily Mail (which often has wonderful animal photos) the other day, it's Britain's smallest mammal, the harvest mouse. They are quite endangered and this fellow feasting on blackberries is one of a group of harvest mice released by the Secret World animal rescue centre in Somerset. It is hoped they will start to breed and establish a colony in that part of the country.
I thought, beside it being such a cute photo, it was really symbolic of Autumn. Good luck to the harvest mice, they are too gorgeous to lose from our countryside! You can read the full article here
