Someone was saying that all

Someone was saying that all photos of moles are likely to be of dead ones since they spend so much time underground. however i was standing on the side of a main road the other day (waiting for breakdown truck after car broke down) and a mole walked right past my feet and disappeared into the bushes of course i did not have camera!!
