  Desert Mouse in Nahal Rahaf, Israel
by Martin_S.

Nahal Rahaf is a beautiful dry gorge running from near Arad to the Dead Sea. In the middle of a desert people do not expect to find wildlife or plant life. But in this area the valleys provide pockets in the shade of the cliffsides where water can be found even in summer. This is where you will find the "congregation" of wildlife, like this tiny desert mouse that I caught on film when he came out to try and steal a meal from our picnic.
