Cute, fluffy and perpetually active, it is not easy to capture a water vole standing still. The photographer writes, "Seen at the British Wildlife Centre. Water voles are usually seen sitting and eating, swimming about, or a blur of movement. In a rare stationary moment, the vole's legs can be seen."
