Hello friends, I think you know me enough
to know that I also love this kind of photos :)
and above you will see that I did not zoomed
I leaved at wide angle 25mm because I want
also to show the environment with this cute
little animal that is the baby wood mouse.

1/60s f/2.8 ISO200 4.5mm (35mm eq:25mm).

From the following website :

« North American Deermice rarely leave their homes
during the day, but feed opportunistically at night on
whatever is available: seeds, nuts, fruit, berries, insects and
other animal matter, and whatever they find tasty in houses.

North American Deermice have the most extensive range
of any North American rodent, and are found in almost
every kind of habitat. They climb easily, tunnel through
snow or scurry about on its surface, and find shelter
everywhere from mattresses to tree cavities to burrows
in the ground.

Populations fluctuate in cycles of three to five years,
sometimes correlated with the amount of food available.
The North American Deermouse is important as a
laboratory animal, and can be a factor in the spread
of some human diseases, including hantavirus, plague,
and Lyme disease. »

Good idea to place the subject in its habitat, Asbed.
Though the face of the Mouse is partially obstructed by a thin twig, the image still has strong appeal.
Thanks and regards.
