Run, Rabbit, Run!

Cotton-tail Rabbits have been coming out to explore the pastures and gulch areas of the little farm in recent days.  On April 15, 2012, I saw two of the swift bunnies running near the driveway and the gulch.  One had been escaping a loose Beagle dog that excitedly had chased the rabbit from the street.  The owner called the dog home as the rabbit made the dash up the driveway, to relative safety near where I was standing with the camera.

The other rabbit darted out from the gulch area and headed off across the shoreline to the lush pasture at the far end of the little farm.  I took these pictures in my yard on Sunday at about 5:00pm.   Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

    i am so impressed a beagle gave up on chasing prey to listen to its owner! 🙂

    • Hi TexWisGirl, I am also impressed in the same way. I think that my presence between the pup and the bunny in addition to the owner calling, made the little difference for that rabbit. Well-trained Beagle, anyway. Have a great day and a nice one tomorrow!

  3. Cute little rabbits, Linda…. Hopefully, they felt safe in your yard!!!!! Amazing that the Beagle listened to his owner… Must be well-trained!!!!!

    Have a good day… Cold here and drizzly. BUT–we never did get any rain much from this system… Too bad since we need rain.. They watered the golf course this morning… Shows how dry things are….

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  4. I did enjoy your bunnies, they are so cute.

  5. Great bunny shots! I’m happy that we have two now in residence here. They wintered here under our log pile and have stayed now, hopefully for the summer. They are safe here.
