Mouse Tse Tung

Yup, He's Incredibly Well Connected

Photographs copyright: DAVID McMAHON


Okay, so I had a great shot of a buffalo in an Indian courtyard, all ready to auto-post. Then I changed my mind at the last moment and decided to have a bit of fun with this theme. I'm sure Misty Dawn won't object to my irreverence, because this really is a mouse.

Not your regular kind of critter, but because we all have one, I'm sure this will bring a smile to your face. It's just a normal Hewlett-Packard wireless mouse, but I thought the shots would be unusual because of the red glow and the see-through bottom.

Trust you to be different! Great idea. My cats don't think this sort of mouse is as much fun though.
Excellent shots - difficult to do I would imagine but very sharp and detailed.

Your mouse is much more photogenic than mine, David. The Logitech laser mouse is totally black on the bottom except for a tiny green bar light and a red connect button. Sleek, but not terribly exciting. :) Nice pictures.

Cheers!

I've seen those kind of lights in my rear view mirror, back in my younger days, David.

Now that's the sort of mouse I really like!
You had giggling.
TY.

Misty Dawn said...

Well you sneaky and clever little... I must admit, I kept scrolling up and down your blog thinking "Where the heck is his Camera-Critters post? He said it was here!" Very clever my friend... you never cease to 'get me' with your creativity.

Tammy said...

Very clever take on CC!

Juli said...

LMAO! My dog is here if you feel like checking him out!

Lilli & Nevada said...

Well that is very creative

Stacey said...

Okay that wouldn't have crossed my mind--that's a good one, David. Just don't decide to put up a pic pic anytime soon! Happy CC

Most inventive critter image. Made me smile. Good close up photo aswell actually.

Bwahaha! You are so punny! I never would have thought of a mouse as a critter.

quilly said...

You're always thinking outside the cage.
