I’ve finally got round to taking some photos of our gerbils, Diamond and Pearl. Ellie was cleaning our their cage this morning so I had to babysit them both on the sofa, and took the opportunity to whip my camera out. It’s actually quite hard to get a good shot of something so small and so quick moving! They seemed more interested in trying to eat the camera strap than in posing for photographs. I got a couple of good ones later when they were back in their home, with the camera lens right up against the glass.
The white one is Pearl, and the brown one with the white diamond on her head is… well, you work it out. Both female, by the way. And very sweet.
