This one made me smile to see that little mouse with that big nut. He'll eat good for some time.

I was wondering if that little guy would be able to chew into that nut but I guess they can chew through anything..ha, ha! I bought up all the leftover Pecans that Walmart had from the holidays. Only a dollar a bag. I eat most of them myself but sometimes will throw out a few for the squirrels. That evening the squirrels never came back so the little mouse was lucky. But of course he has enough stuff to eat out there. But for some reason he wanted that huge nut.. I just happened to be sitting right at the window to see him. My camera is always by my side. That is really the first mouse I've seen this winter enough to photograph. They are usually so fast I can't catch them. I do love to see them. I think they are so pretty and cute.
Thanks for the comments everyone. Glad you enjoyed the video!!

Hahaha! That was soooo cute! How do you constantly find all these cute critters? I bet he thought he hit the jackpot with that nut! I love your header too...I can't believe he gets that close...amazing!

Thanks Joan, Martha and Kelly! I was just lucky to have seen that mouse I guess. They are usually too fast. I'll have to throw more of those nuts out some evening..Ha! I did throw some out yesterday and the darn things went right into the hole, so he never had to leave to get it.. The Voles will get mad if their holes are plugged up..ha!
Kelly. That one little deer is the only one that comes real close. Last night he even jumped over part of that wall to get down there. I'll have to get the video on.
