It was taken in the London underground where Sam would spend many long hours in the middle of the night, lying on the floor capturing these tiny rodents.
Love this entry too.

Selected from over 48,000 entries, Yongqing’s shot frames a battle for survival. Combining humour & horror, the image captures an unforgettable moment between a Tibetan fox and a marmot.
Congrats, Yongqing! #WPY55 pic.twitter.com/72Hn83MsCf
Don't think my picture of "A Bird on a NZ Beach" would cut it? Haha!
