I was walking from the library to the music building and ran into this little guy--no bigger than a plump cherry--running around on the sidewalk below a canopy of ornamental grasses. I know he'll grow up to be a pest with destructive capabilities that belie his minute and fuzzy stature, but for now...ain't he just the cutest little thing!


  1. Hmmmm While he IS cute, I've had nightmares about those very little critters recently. We have had a huge pocket gopher problem this summer.
    I'm sure your little guy has no bad intentions, though. GREAT picture at any rate!

  2. I found one of those in the meadow today. Minus its back legs. We have a lot of feral cats.
