We have an influx of mice every fall here in the New Hampshire woods.
They are cute, but also have a dangerous side. The image in the background
is an abstracted version of the hantavirus, a deadly disease carried in
wild mouse droppings. The Navaho, on whose New Mexico reservation the
hantavirus was first discovered in the U.S., gave the name "Sin Nombre",
which means "no name", to the disease.
