This was one of the most challenging photos I have ever taken. I was following this “family” of Algerian mice for some time. Usually, wild mice are extremely confident and curious animals, at least where I live. They are so confident that one of them climbed over my foot and then jumped to my backpack, which was right on my side. Nevertheless, it took me several weeks to get this image, going to the location almost every day, for at least 4 hours every night, because I wanted the animal to stop exactly behind the acorn. Sometimes they would not appear at all and other times they would be scavenging for food, but never stopping where I needed to. The message of this photo is that wild mice can be cute animals and not disgusting as many people think. I tried to include some of their biological traits in this image: activity (nocturnal habits), diet (acorns) and habitat (oak forests), although the last two may vary. This photo is really special to me, not only because of all the work behind it, but also because of all the magic moments I spent with these creatures.
