A Bunny Close-up

This Cotton-tailed Rabbit was standing stock-still when it saw me approach.  I rather stumbled across the bunny when walking towards my home.  This rabbit was standing just behind my car and about ten feet from my front porch steps.  I snapped away, turned my back and the bunny fled.  It had been raining just before I came across the rabbit so the bunny likely had been under the car during the storm.  There are several rabbits here but so far, the only damage I have seen was to the bark of one  of the dwarf Apple Trees (now I will cover the trunks with a plastic guard) and a couple of carrots (duh!) in the garden from earlier in the Summer when we were on vacation.  I took these pictures in my yard on Sept. 2, 2012.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

  3. Hi, Just wanted to drop by and say HELLO. It’s been a busy week/month –and just gonna get busier.

    We usually have rabbits around here –but I haven’t seen many this year. Glad you can have them around –and have such a small amount of damage… They ate my Impatiens two different years. I finally quit planting them.
