________________________


You've seen many bubbles shots from me. Many ratties shots too. What about a rattie WITH bubbles now? :slow:

Arkanys LOVED this. He jumped on the bubbles to pop them, that was very funny to observe, he enjoyed this photosession a lot ^^
I didn't enjoy it quite as much though... blowing bubbles + getting Arkanys head in focus + some bubbles still floating was a nightmare. I developped some kind of "mad bubble blower and photographer speed" skills. Next time I'll do this during the weekend and ask my boyfriend to blow bubbles ^^;


Arkanys, black irish dumbo rex rat, born April the 16th 2010.

He is the sweetest rattie ever, he's very cuddly, licky and playful. He's also quite the little clown and always make funny faces. He's a pretty smart rat who learn tricks very quickly and is also quite the friendly and glue-like rat who would do anything to be allowed to go to work with my boyfriend or follow me anywhere :heart:

Arkanys comes from an unwanted litter from a rescue doe, Harley, who had been abandonned by her previous owner. The foster family who rescued her didn't seem to know males and female rats shouldn't play on the same area together and the girl who adopted Harley soon discovered that she was pregnant...
I saw a video showing Harley's pups and my boyfriend and I just melt when we saw Arkanys cute little nose and white socks... So we adopted him and I must say this rattie is the cutest thingie ever and I can't believe such a small rat has so much love to give :heart:

Lush "flying fox" soap + water + my own homemade "bubble shaper" tool (which allows me to blow many bubbles at the same time and is made out of wire :))

I think my rat would have a heart attack if I started blowing bubbles at him. XD My sister's rat would probably just try to eat them.

He didn't get any soap in his eyes, did he? :noes: That'd be the saddest thing ever... :tears:

:icondianephotos:
DianePhotos Featured By Owner Oct 16, 2010
Nope, he didn't get soap in his eyes at all and it seemed to be great fun for him, he was very excited and couldn't stop chasing all the bubbles, jumping on them :)
I chose an especially "sweet" soap to avoid any trouble by the way. I've gotten this one in my eyes quite often and it doesn't hurt that much compared to the other ones, plus these Lush products are quite natural and don't contain lots of chemicals...
This one was mostly made out of honey and jasmine essential oils. I must admit I even tasted it someday and it was sweet ^^;

It looks like this was a challenge to photograph, but you did exceedingly well! I love animals' reaction to bubbles. They seem so fascinated with them. I never tried blowing bubbles with my pet rats, but I'd bet my Algernon would have been quite curious to have seen them. :)

He seems to be a curious little guy. I like the darkness of the backround. It contrasts perfectly with the bubbles. Well done!
