The bunny among us

by Lissa June. 30, 2008 2019 views

I came home from work today, and before cooking dinner, sat down on the couch to gaze out the front window a bit. It was too hot to sit on the porch, and this is the next best thing. Besides, more critters come around when I'm inside than when I'm outside.

This afternoon our front yard was a happenin' place. We had squirrels, bunnies, gold finches, house finches, cardinals, titmice, chickadees, blue jays and doves - all at the same time. At times it felt like something out of an old Chiffon margarine commercial [].

Sugar sits transfixed, watching a bunny in the yard. The bunny was not bothered by her one bit. It was as if it knew that Sugar was confined to the porch.

ETA: To avoid any confusion - Sugar is a dog. :)

You always have so many wonderful animals... I love this shot - it always reminds me of how my dog used to react to the bunnies in our yard (we would try to keep her away from them when possible)....

Okay, Sugar does look like a cat from the back--but I love the whole sense of anticipation. I can just imagine Sugar wanting to "play" with the rabbit...

This is a great shot! What a story it tells.

I must admit to being a wee bit jealous by your 'flurry of activity' in your front yard tonight. Sounds awesome!
