Two photographers were left a little surprised when some friendly field mice decided to gate crash their photo shoot.

Annah Ross, from Sussex, had travelled to Dorset with her sister, Jacqueline, to the remote field that is home to harvest mice that are breed and released into the wild.

The amateur wildlife photographers wanted to capture the mice in the natural habitat but half way through the shoot noticed Annah had noticed that one cheeky mouse and climbed on to her camera lens.

Annah said: “Jacqueline couldn’t work out why her camera wasn’t working because it couldn’t focus on anything. She didn’t initially believe us when we said the mouse was on her lens. But I think her expression says it all when she saw.”

Annah, a 50-year-old, a manager at a food manufacturing company, said although the mice look friendly they are definitely not tame.

She said: “The hardest part was realising that they wouldn’t keep still and pose!”

“We took over 3000 photographs between us in three hours! But I think we would have enjoyed ourselves just as much if we didn’t have the camera there as the mice were so cute to watch.”
