A tiny forest vole runs under a mushroom as it starts to rain - and finds a treat to enjoy during the shower.

The little rodent stayed under the parasol mushroom, which at around 25cm high provided the perfect cover from the rain, for around 15 minutes.

But after being disturbed by a bird who spotted some seeds nearby, the vole climbed up the stem of the mushroom before braving the rain and running away to find another shelter.
