1/250s f/16 ISO 400 70mm
Description:
This delightful little Wood mouse lives in my garage and gets fed peanuts daily.
Rest assured that the trap is totally harmless.
The traps spring mechanism has been disabled so it is under no tension and cannot operate, the tilt plate is wedged up from underneath to give the illusion that its set and ready to spring.
I baited the trap with cheese for the photo although contrary to popular belief mice do not seem to be very fond of it, therefore i placed a peanut under the tilt plate and another bedded into the back of the cheese.
Single flash gun mounted off camera.
