I found this mouse (most likely a Deer Mouse) with her nest of babies in an old hinged wooden box while out fishing.
So not quite a "rat's nest," huh? lol. That is SO adorable... You find the coolest stuff! Maybe I just need to learn where to look. Anyway, as always, wonderful picture. :3 Your photography always makes me smile. ^^ (So does your art- I get excited when you post a new drawing! XD )
Heheh.. thank you! My biggest thing is flipping things over. Anything flat lying on the ground is a good place for snakes. If it's a log, or a hunk of bark, or a piece of tin, or whatnot.. they LOVE getting under there, and so do mice!
