Red-Eyed Tree Frog and Harvest Mouse Workshop

Wednesday a14th October 9:30 am to 03:30 pm

Come along and photograph these incredible tree frogs harvest mice in studio conditions. This is a chance to capture some stunning images and to have some great fun at the same time.
Harvest mice are Britain’s smallest British rodent, they are the only old world mammal to have truly prehensile tails, which they use to help them climb. They are very agile and love climbing up the stems of wheat and plants. They are heartwarming, fascinating and attractive subjects for photography.

Red-eyed tree frogs spend most of their time on large tropical leaves they are not poisonous and rely on camouflage to protect themselves. During the day, they stay still, cover their blue sides with their back legs, tuck their bright feet under their stomachs, and shut their red eyes. So they look almost completely green and are well hidden amongst the leaves. The large red eyes are defensive called dramatic behaviour. When a red-eyed tree frog detects a predator, it abruptly opens its eyes and stares at the predator. The sudden appearance of the red eyes may startle the predator, giving the frog a chance to flee.

We will be adding snakes such as Royal Python, boa constrictor, and corn snake, spiders such as tarantula and insects such as praying mantis 

The workshops are from 9:30 am until 3:30 pm and we can take six photographers. The workshops are conducted in a specially constructed studio. We start with a cup of tea and discuss camera settings and mice. We use natural props from the hedgerow giving different seasonal images, you are welcome to bring your props and try out any ideas you may have.
