I am essentailly a mammalogist. So, I am very pleasure seeing such a rodent capture. it is very clear, great details and sharpness. Lighting, composition, POV/DOF wonderful. good notes. thanks for sharing us.
PS: There is a small story of the species name (I listened it from my lecturer, when I was a university student):
Latin name terrestris (terrestrial, not water) and Arvicola (arvi = field, cola = lover). Linne saw firstly on a trunk of tree and he assumed terrestrial mice. Now, everybody called it as water vole. even if Turkish name susicani mean water vole.

As a fisherman as well as photographer (ahem!!) I know how rare these blokes are..Ive never seen one..They are so similar to a common rat that many people could mistake them for being such.
You have captured him very well with a lovely mossy foreground and a pinsharp eye.
Great work Karan and TFS

Hi Karen, what a cute little water vole and such a stunning close up! A superb shot, beautifully sharp with great focus and detail on the Vole. Colours and light wonderful and all set off with a good dof.

A lovely little fellow!
Seems like he is a bit depressed by the thought of his not too bright future...
Good light and super details, effective point of view!

A wonderful super sharp photo of this lovely little rodent. The shiny coat of the vole is very beautiful and his sweet expression is perfectly captured. The use of your flash is perfect and helped to bring out the details and colors perfectly. it also gave the vole a wonderful twinkel in the eyes. I like the natural environment around him a lot.

Have you ever considered "MOVING" permenantely to Canada???
We have a lot of these creatures in our rivers and lakes.
Canada is a HAVEN for wildlife.
If any citizen is caught "hurting" wildlife or its habitat he gets a fine of such propotions that he will NEVER EVER forget that he MUST leave wildlife in "as is" condition. Even a roadside kill by a car does not go unpunished.
Loved your image; the twinkle in its eye says: " Hello, Karan. You are my friend".
Loved your notes too, very much.
Mario from Canada.

So pictorial shot of this cute animal. I like bright rich colours, excellent flash light and terrific details of the animal and its surroundings. Especially I like the reproduction of the tiny plants – moth. Inclned composition is very strractive too as well as the nice smooth transition to blurriness. My compliments and kind regards.
