This ‘secret countryman’ was spotted peeking his head above the ground in Petworth, Sussex.

The photo was taken by local David Cole, 70, and won The Prince’s Countryside Fund’s photography competition.

It was named the overall winner from 3600 entries after taking top spot in one of the six categories: Wildlife, My Favourite Place, Finest View, Down on the Farm, Countryside People and By the Sea.

“I am thrilled that I have won. I’m so surprised and so pleased that my son persuaded me to enter. I love spending time in the countryside walking my three dogs, taking in the wildlife,” says David.

He even thanked his subject saying: “I’m delighted that this cheeky chappy, the mole, has brought about my win!”

Victoria Harris, director of The Prince’s Countryside Fund, said: “All the final images captured the breadth of our British countryside, but David is a worthy winner, with his image showing one of many natural and seldom seen wonders of the countryside.”

The Fund hopes that this cute photo will inspire people to see sights like this by visiting the countryside. So, take your camera and see what you can find!

In my opinion, if most of website homeowners and folks produced great content materials as you do, the web shall be a lot much more helpful than ever before.
