Remember the lemming hiding under the HBA tile? The fact is that they are very common and over the last weeks, we've seen countless of the little creatures.
However, it is rare to actually get close to them. They are timid and dart away quickly if you approach them. And, being so small, they are difficult to photograph.
But this little one was relying on its camouflage to protect it, allowing me to get a little closer. Can you see it... just the front part of its body is sticking out from under the rock.
If they don't move, these little creatures are extremely difficult to see. However, just after I took this photograph, this one decided to make a break for it, scampered over a snow drift and disappeared under a layer of ice.
