When I was walking by the lake last week, I heard and just barely saw something small dart into the brush by the water. It didn't move like a squirrel, but it was similar in size, so I waited a few minutes to see if I could get a better look. Then I noticed some chickadees in the tree above and forgot all about my mystery friend in the bush.
About 10 minutes later, this tiny little bunny came crashing out of the brush right at me! I guess I had been so quiet that it forgot I was out there and assumed it was safe to make its escape. Then it noticed me and froze. I took a few quick photos, but I could see how fast the poor little thing was breathing, so I walked away because I wanted it to feel safe going back wherever it needed to go.
So cute though!
