Tiny Tuesday! The secret life of a harvest mouse ...

tt




I just fell in love with this photo series, "The Secret Life of the Harvest Mouse." From The Telegraph: "Photographers Jean-Louis Klein and Marie-Luce Hubert spent a whole year photographing these adorable little creatures in a project that saw them released from captivity into the wild."  These reddish-brown mice are the smallest rodents in Europe. They make their homes in fields of wheat, oats and other cereal crops. They're known for their acrobatic leaps and highly prehensile tails used for climbing. These photos show us a world I'd never spent much time thinking about. Seems like a nice little life, to be a harvest mouse! See more photos in this slide show.
