Winged Mouse


The Common Treecreeper (Certhia familiaris) is a small bird searching for food such as hidden insects with its long thin bill in the bark of the trees. It is flitting restless up and down the trunks and the movements remind me of a speedy mouse never stopping and therefor taking images is a real challenge.
