Although this beautiful creature has been frequenting my yard for some time, I have managed to see only a blur as I blunder into its space. Yesterday's rain kept me under cover and provided the long-awaited opportunity.
Although around here they're commonly know as rabbits or bunnies, its formal name is the Eastern Cottontail, Sylvilagus floridanus.
I'm really excited to be able to change pace by moving into the animal kingdom. And it's not over yet! Tomorrow's post, although a bit off in quality, will hopefully prove most interesting. I know it blew me away!
Sometimes I begin to wonder where the next new material will come from. Will the supply run dry? I'm slowly coming to believe that that just cannot happen. The more I get out and simply look around, the more incredible diversity that opens up before me. For instance, I have posts stubbed in for the rest of the week and there's still material backed up for research and processing. Now that's job security! :-)
p.s. Here's how I usually see my little friend--no fur, just blur!
