15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Mobile
Mouse House

I was hiking in Connecticut and found a fantastic tree to climb! After looking closely at one of the thick branches I noticed a hole that was home to about 7 mice. I peered in at them and they seemed very interested in me too and started poking their heads out one by one to get a look. It makes you realize how many creatures call trees their home.
