These little mice were caught on camera showing off their acrobatic skills by climbing on dandelions and buttercups.

Dean Mason, 51, a professional photographer captured the images in Wimborne, Dorset on Wednesday 16th of May.

Dean, who also runs Windows on Wildlife hides and workshops, for photographers who are looking to capture wildlife, shows the mice, ‘doing what they do best’, climbing and acrobatics.

Dean said: “The images show harvest mice doing what they do best, climbing and their usual acrobatic nature.

“My favourite captures are the images where harvest mice are climbing the meadow buttercups.

“It clearly shows the true acrobatic nature of these incredible tiny mammals and just how fascinating their natural behaviour is.

“Capturing the right moment can be very tricky as the mice are moving constantly most of the time.

“But when it happens and it all falls into place it’s priceless.”
