This cute photograph of a cheeky mouse was captured by Robert McKenna of Kessingland.

He took the photo using his Canon digital camera in his garden last month.

Mr McKenna, 70, said: 'I was cutting the grass at the time and I deposited two or three heaps of fresh cut grass around the garden putting one near to the bird table.

'As I did so, I noticed a movement beside the grass heap and I kept very still, and then saw a mouse disappear into the grass heap.'

He added: 'I then decided to take a break to eat my sandwich after first collecting my camera from the house.

You may also want to watch:

'I deliberately left a few crumbs on top of the grass and waited a while when this little chap turned up and seemed to be begging me for a piece of my bread.

'I can only assume that he had been feeding on the spillage from the bird table before.
