Photo: Mice Squabbling Over A Morsel Of Food

Mice are subterranean creatures who love lurking underground, and since the London Underground is, well, underground, it won’t be a surprise if we find some of these mice in the public transit system.

Sam Rowley was fascinated by these mice, and he decided to spend a week down The Tube (a nickname for the London Underground) trying to take a photo of these rodents.

And one night, he captured an image of two of them literally battling over a morsel of food dropped by a passenger.

That persistence to get the snap has won Sam the Wildlife Photographer of the Year LUMIX People’s Choice award.

The photo was titled “Station’s Squabble”.
