Excellent close-ups with good definition - well taken.

Sharp and plenty of detail. Excellent set, although on my monitor they look a little over exposed

Lovely images although I would tone down the saturation of the green channel in the first few images. The day-glo green rather distracts from the subject.

Do you have a location you visit regularly to see these little critters?

Cheers, Kris.

Lots of film bodies, a couple of digital ones, too many lenses (mainly older glass) and a Horseman LE 5x4.

I have been feeding these Bank Voles for about a year and a half so they come out and feed after about 15 mins
The first 3 images were withe the Vole on top of a moss covered log with woods behind in full sunlight[no flash] that is why the background is so green.

All good shots Gary, but I do agree with Kris re the colour from the K20D shots, and they look overexposed by about 1/3.
Were you shooting jpegs? I tried my K20D on "Bright" setting once and it did something very similar to this, it went back onto "Natural" straight away!

I always shoot in RAW.
I have sold the K20D a while back.I can't really remember what it was set to.

Nice shots
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Shouldn't have mattered then, although camera settings for jpegs are stored in the RAW file and some RAW converters will display the RAW file with those setting applied as a starting point.

It was just a thought, the K5 shots are so much better by comparison.

Did you come across the Voles by accident or have some prior knowledge of where they were?

Alan ,I was in some local woods taking bird shots when I noticed mouse droppings on a tree stump so I started to put food close by and and just kept going back
