Ever Seen a Mouse Fly?

It’s like a house fly, but a whole lot cuter!

This is John Cocks/RHS/PA commendation winning photo for the Royal Horticultural Society 2012 annual photo contest.

    Heeere I come to save the dayyyyy!”…. *can’t remember the rest of the Mighty Mouse anthem* (Am I dating myself? Well, heck, yeah!)

  2. I’ll date myself along with you emmberrann. Funny how these things stick in the brain when you can’t remember who said what to you a week ago!

    Mister Trouble never hangs around
    When he hears this Mighty sound:

    “Here I come to save the day!”
    That means that Mighty Mouse is on the way!

    Yes sir, when there is a wrong to right
    Mighty Mouse will join the fight

    On the sea or on the land
    He gets the situation well in hand

  3. Krakatoa Katie, she ain’t no lady…

    This photo is perhaps why, in German, a bat is called a _fledermaus_. :-)

  12. 6rabbits says:

  13. And there’s an opera called Die Fledermaus. :D

  14. and a character from The Tick comic/cartoon :)

  15. Alice Shortcake says:

    Notice how the whiskers allow him to navigate.

  16. I wouldn’t mind these guys buzzing around my porch in the summer!

  17. NO Mouse Zapper!!

  18. edmundh says:

  21. Rachael says:

  22. JenDeyan says:

    Oh, if it were only true…

  23. Isn’t that what you’re supposed to do with your mouse to see the hovertext?

  24. skippymom says:


  25. I love this guy!

  26. look,at those stupendous Wee-skers

  27. Izzat the Outrageous Frawnsche wird for “whiskers”, ka?? ;)

  28. Able to leap tall blades in a single bound…

  29. So, if Superman’s cat is named Streaky, would Mr. Mouse’s name here be Squeaky?

  30. Hover mouse!

  31. ScoutsMom says:

    Never seen a house fly either. Well, maybe in the wizard of oz, but that was just a movie. If my house could fly, I’d fly it to the beach.

  32. bob drummond says:

    Not today you don’t ! Didn’t you see the weather report ???:-(

  33. Much cuter than the mouses in my garage eating the bird seed I drop. Although the ones in my garage are pretty cute, but tend to startle me into screaming like a girl.

  34. bob drummond says:

    Hey, mister chicken , why are U afraid of a bunch of little mice ?

  35. Chickens eat mice.

  36. photogirl says:

    Mighty Mouse needs to go viral as a photobomber!

  37. HoverMouse!

  38. PS: Attention SKIPPYMOM!

  42. I think even I could go for nomming those earsies…
