a friendly field mouse


one of the little mice that lives in our garden has the courage of a bear.  in the dimming early evening light she comes out and sits in plain sight a couple of feet away from me and quietly munches on sunflower hearts.  i've given up trying to capture her image with my camera, whenever i come inside to grab it she waits . .  still munching . .  until i go back outside and point it at her, then she scampers off quick as a flash . .  laughing as she goes.  mischievous little creatures, now i just sit and enjoy the twinkle in her eyes as she delicately handles those seeds.
