Now, I know that handling furry little creatures is not going to be everyone's cup of tea (myself included), but this tiny little creature was so very cute, that I really didn't mind getting up close and personal to it.
We were expecting that he would scurry off hurriedly, but that didn't happen, he just curled up into a little ball of fur and stayed perfectly still.
Awww.... isn't that sweet?
We did eventually place him (still sleeping!) back into the fields.
