Hello, my name is Simon Dell, also known as Mr. Tographer.

Being a wildlife photographer and after discovering a family of mice by the brambles in my garden, I set about creating a little world and place for the mice to live, building them tiny homes in the style of hobbit houses, all equipped with everything a tiny home should have, such as tables, chairs, and even little small plates, bowls, and mugs, all crafted by hand from wood scraps. The mice soon moved into the little homes and started interacting with the tiny props I would make them. All this started back in 2018, and since then, we have had many generations of mice and seen lots of babies grow from tiny mice to adults and soon become parents or even grandparents. Collecting fruits, nuts, and berries from the local trees, the mice get a large selection of food to nibble on daily along with some peanuts and seed as a treat; we even mix a little peanut butter with water to fill the tiny mugs, often calling it peanut butter beer. What started as one mouse home soon became a whole mouse village as I built and crafted to ensure every mouse had a house or place to hide and keep safe or shelter from the rain. By night I place over a wire net cover to keep the little guys safe and by day spend many hours just watching the little guys running around or investigating the little things I made them. Here are just some of the many thousands of images I have captured of the mice over the years. I hope you enjoy my little mouse world and be sure to pop over to our Facebook pages to see more. “The mouse by the brambles ” and “George the mouse in a log pile house.”
