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!)

    SOOOOO cute!
    This photo is perhaps why, in German, a bat is called a _fledermaus_. 🙂

  3. 6rabbits says:

  7. Rachael says:

    How squeerific!!

  8. 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

  19. 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.

  23. 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.

  24. skippymom says:

    OK, you’re so smart, can you do the theme song to Underdog? (I can’t, but I looked it up.)

  25. photogirl says:
