Cute !
Good composition. I like the blurred background.
Some more details be much appreciated.

Hi Murat.I guess from your missing note that you don't know what this creature is.
It looks to me a little bit like a Jerboa or a Kangaroo Rat.Gerbils also look a bit like this too,as do prairie dogs,but my guess is Jerboa.
Any ideas?

Hi Murat very good capture. A wee-bit soft focussed but this is the only nit from my side. Great composition.
Very well done.

Hello Murat, very good capture of this beautiful eyed thing! This is a Citellus citellus xsantophrymnus/European ground squirrel. A very common mammal in middle Anatolia and a preffered prey for long legged buzzard, golden eagle and etc. Thank you for this fine capture. A prepared a workshop for you hope you like it.

Great sharpness and good light here. Cute subject: I like it very much. Next time please post also a note in order to let us know more about it. Bravo!
