Bunnies in the Driveway!

This morning I was about to start some laundry when I felt a little nudge to go for a walk instead. The laundry could wait. As I stepped out onto the porch with my camera, I spotted...

Bunnies in the driveway!

I don't think they were very happy to see me.

I snapped a few pictures, 
and then slowly, quietly, eased off the porch 
and circled around the back of the house to the other side. 

I peeked around the corner of the garage . . . 

And one of the rabbits was still there, 
eyeing me over his shoulder.

When I didn't attack,

he turned around to get a proper look at me.
Cute, isn't he?

He was evidently more hungry than frightened, 
because he went back to grazing.

I'd never seen rabbits on our property in the seven years 
I've lived here, although Bill told me they were around.

I've probably passed within yards of them dozens of times.
They have pretty good camo.

He did keep an eye on me . . . 

even while eating!

Check out those huge hind feet!

And that cute little cotton tail.

At this point I caught some movement out of the corner of my eye...

and realized his buddy hadn't fled very far.
He was regarding me with great suspicion 
from behind the nearby trees.

"Can I reach that clump of grass?"


"What? Who's dangerous? What human?"

Here he's pretending he's not planning anything.

Wait for it . . . 

Wait for it . . . 

And he's gone--

right out of the picture!

I think he's trying to hide from me. 

Yup. Now both rabbits are looking at me with suspicion. 
Time to let them be.
