A tiny "kangaroo mouse" that appeared underfoot on a section of boardwalk during one of our forest walks... it wasn't afraid and I snapped a couple of quick frames. (the boardwalk was to prevent people from trampling around on old growth forest floor)

sweet capture, and you got lucky as it might be better to be afraid of bigger things than it and get back under the boards
