One fine afternoon, a little mouse was foraging in our yard. Nicôle spotted the little animal, even before I did, as it came out from under the shed. I went down on all fours in order to have a closer look and managed to get really close to the tiny creature. It almost seemed as if it wasn't aware of my presence. For some fifteen minutes, I crawled side by side with the mouse, carefully studying it's every move. It was really interesting. Nicôle had a good time, too, watching me moving through the yard on hands and knees.
Then, the little mouse left our yard and strolled into the forest. There it started feasting on a mushroom. Recognising the species as being poisonous to humans, I wondered what to do, but decided to let nature have it's way. I can only hope that Mother Nature educates her children well.
