We were at Schnebly Vista, (see my post here… https://kritterspix.com/2021/06/11/schnebly-hill-vista/ ), when we caught this little mouse gathering food.
We watched this little guy for quite a while, nibbling away on an agave, then proceed to carry this stalk probably 5x his size down into a his home.
How often is it you can watch a wild animal going about their daily activity?
While he knew we were there, he was more intent on gathering food, perhaps for his family.
Either way, we were thrilled to have the opportunity to witness him (or her) at work. Very cool.
