Pine Lake, Wisconsin – Highlander Road

Near Rhinelander, we turned off Dundee Road onto Highlander, I spotted this mouse on the pavement right next to the grassy edge of the road through the wooded subdivision. I stopped the car and caught it in the headlights. It looked like it was feeding on something. It sat up some and ran back and forth along the edge of the pavement, then disappeared into the roadside grass.
