The little critters are out! I love the little mouse tracks, and although they tunnel under the snow most of the time, sometimes they run across the top. The first picture is blurry, but it's not the camera's fault. I took it yesterday, and the snow was really fluffy. It didn't hold the pattern well. But you can see that there were two mice, side by side.
Today it was warmer, and the snow is beginning to pack a bit so it holds impressions better. Once again, there were two mice side by side. See the side by side prints of the large back feet? The back feet obliterate the front foot prints when they are hopping through the snow. And I love the cute little tail drag.
Where were these mice going? Not far, out in the open! See the two round holes, side by side? They ducked right under the snow where they make tunnels.
Have fun, little mice!
