We all can agree that Harvest Mice are cute and adorable little creatures. Despite that, they are not a popular subject in wildlife photography or pet photography. But, this photographer Miles Herbert seems to have decided that they deserve to be shot (with a camera, of course) up close. So he went his way and created a series of adorable photographs of Harvest Mice inside flowers, in his indoor studio.
Instead of disturbing the wildlife, a bunch of captive-bred mice have been used in these photoshoots. Although, it should be noted that once the mice are strong enough, they are released into the wild. Herbert’s decision to place mice inside tulip flowers generates a whole other vibe. Even though tulips are not so strong, their strength is just enough to contain a little harvest mouse inside them.

The photographer’s studio, ‘Captivelight‘ holds workshops for photographers who want to make outstanding photographs of little creatures like birds, reptiles, frogs, mantises, etc. In an interview with ‘My Modern Met‘, Herbert explains, “We provide a service for photographers looking for high impact pictures of the animals, and using a purpose-built studio means that we are not weather dependent.”
They seem very comfortable inside the flowers. Herbert mentions, “It’s always a pleasure watching these endearing little creatures as they go about their business.” He further adds, “The mice love the smell of the pollen and climb inside the flowers to eat the stamens, often falling asleep inside the flower.”
The lighting and the depth of field are spot-on in these. It adds much more value to these super-cute photographs. Visit the photographer’s website and social media channels for tons more amazing photographs of animals and other creative photographs.
