Hy Seyed
It could be a vole, and the most species belong to Microtus. But, I am not a zoologist to have a good oppinion. I hope that somebody elso will help you with the identification.
But anyway, cute animal, taken in a nice pose with very good details!
Kind regards,

Hi Babak,
What a cute little critter!
Great POV and eye contact.
I hope somebody will be able to tell us what that is.
TFS. : )

Good image of this pretty animal.
Nice capture.Well done.
Best regards.Alin.

Hallo Seyed
This is such a cutie pie, and the pose in which you have captured this little one makes it looks like it is a mischievous little rascal. The huge olive shaped eyes stand out well and are a beautiful feature of this little animal. I like the direct eye contact and the natural sunlight in the image. A lovely image without any pretence. Thanks for sharing this sweet little fellow. Best regards.

Hi Seyed,
too late I iscover one of your rare and excellent wildlife pictures of Iran. Of course an ID would be welcome. The book
HARRINGTON, F. A., JR. (ED.). 1977. A guide to the mammals of
Iran. Department of Environment, Tehran, Iran
is unfortunately not available to me. I know that Arvicola terrestris occurs from Western Europe to Iran, but since the picture is from Khorasan province... Anyway, thanks for your contribution to TN.
Best regards
