Nearly Wordless Wednesday: A Bunny

This Cotton-tailed Rabbit visited on Monday at about twilight.  Unfortunately I had to take the picture through the closed living room and lanai windows, each screened.  I did not want to go out which would chase the bunny away.  This was a very brief and pretty rare appearance of the rabbit.  Please click on the image to see the slightly enlarged version.  Enjoy!

A Cute Cotton-tail Bunny

This Cotton-tail Rabbit was happily munching on tender grass in a front lawn along my street a couple of days ago late in the afternoon.  It is a rare sight!

There are rabbits here but we seldom are aware of their presence and there are few of them.  I think it is a good thing as many would be unhappy to have their garden eaten by a bunch of bunnies!  The possibility of rabbits visiting my yard is a reason why I have yet to plant any vegetables (along with marauding Grey Squirrels).  Oh well, they all are cute!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!

Marmots, a Jack Rabbit, Prairie Dogs, and a Golden Mantle Ground Squirrel were all recently spotted in South Dakota and in Wyoming.  I snapped these pictures of various (really cute) rodents while on my vacation in Custer State Park, South Dakota and in the magnificent Yellowstone National Park.  I saw what looks like a Snow-shoe Hare (?) in its Summer fur at our campground in Hill City, South Dakota.  There were plenty of perky Prairie Dogs along the Wildlife Loop Road in Custer State Park.  I enjoyed seeing those a lot!

A very swift and oh-so-cute, Golden Mantle Ground Squirrel (the chipmunk-looking rodent) was seen scurrying back and forth on the rocks and trail at one of the overlooks at the Yellowstone National Park’s canyon and Yellowstone Falls.  The last little critters I photographed, were a pair of sweet Yellow-belly Marmots that were quite interested in what I was up to.  All are furry, beautiful little animals and quite photogenic!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!

A Carolina Chickadee, a White-breasted Nuthatch, a pair of Northern Yellow-shafted Flickers and a lone baby Cotton-tailed Rabbit were some of the many examples of wildlife that I saw in my yards on a hot, humid, off-and-on rainy day on August 9, 2012.  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the larger picture.  Enjoy!
