The Secret Life Of Harvest Mice As Never Seen Before

Peek-a-boo: An inquisitive mouse balances on two ears of wheat to take a close look at one of the cameras
A stunning and rare insight into the secret tiny lives of adorable harvest mice is revealed in incredible pictures captured painstakingly over 12 months.
Photographers Jean-Louis Klein and Marie-Luce Hubert, both from the Alsace, France, spent the year snapping the furry subjects in a project that ended with their release into the wild.
Laying patiently in meadows and reed beds, the pair were able to capture the fascinating images.

 Safe as houses: A harvest mouse keeps watch from the safety of its nest made from Phragmites reeds
 Hang about: A harvest mouse shows its agility climbing down a wheat stalk, while young harvest mice put their tails to playful use during a display of acrobatics
