This is the adorable moment two harvest mice were spotted playing on a dandelion.

The sweet pictures show the delightful duo frolicking in the flowers before carefully climbing the stem of the dandelion to reach the head.

The playful mice then demolish the flower head, sending the white seeds flying into the air.

Photographer, Annah Ross, captured the delightful images during a shoot in Dorset.

The 50-year-old said: “The mice were absolutely adorable. They were so excited and curious, they ran up and down the plants but they also liked to cuddle up with each other.

“As they move around really really quickly it is challenging to get that ‘one perfect photo’ and you always think there’s a better photo to be taken if only you were quicker.

“My favourite part of the day was just watching them play. I loved taking the photos but actually spending some time just looking at them was lovely.

“They love the seeds and demolished the seed head in just a few seconds so I had to be quick with the camera.”
