AMY! I TOLD YOU SO

As soon as light starts to go - I have to bring in my bird food - because the rats come out looking for food as soon as it gets dark! This one was more daring, he came out whilst it was still light. It's not a particularly clear shot, because what was left of the light was behind him. I was inside when I spotted him and it was shot through my patio sliding window which is double glazed, plus a fine mesh screen sliding door, outside the glass! He disappeared in a flash as soon as I pressed the shutter, they are faster than greased lightning - and run if they see or hear the slightest movement. :-(

Please go ahead and give me constructive criticism where needed! I am a bit out of practice at both taking and editing decent photographs - so help me if you can!
