The fast, agile fox keeps the mouse in its sights.
With its long hind feet, the little mouse can spring more than a yard high and just as far forward. Once deep in the grass, it can sit motionless until danger passes.
The mouse lands in tall marsh grass, where it freezes. The fox blows by. The mouse is safe. For now.
