Bunnies In My Yard

I've written in the past about the bunnies in my yard. They are so darn cute….. except when they eat my flowering quince bush….   We have  what must be a vary  large new batch of babies nibbling in every corner of the yard.  They are palm size – so little and cute!

They've shown up regularly in my paintings over  the years.  They move too quickly to get lots of photos.  I guess I don't have the patience to sit quietly and wait for them. I'd make a lousy wildlife photographer.  But you can learn a lot about your subject by watching them in motion…..preferably inside with a nice cup of coffee. : – )   If you've ever  watched rabbits, they suddenly take off running in zigzags for no apparent reason, giving you get plenty of time seeing them in motion.  I love the more rounded features and short little ears of the babies.  And over time, you can tell the difference between them by size, narrowness of the face, and variations in fur coloring.

Here's a peek at a few photos I managed to grab of them:

Isn't he a cutie? He or she is only 4 –  5  inches or so from nose to tail.

Sometimes they get way too comfortable around here.  This was freshly planted with flower seeds. Guess it looked like a comfy place to hang out.  This is one of the photos taken from inside.


  1. Wild rabbits – that is so lovely to see!  You don't get much of this in the city, only foxes that raid the bins and cry at night.

  2. Awwwww. I love rabbits. At my old place I saw them all the time in the back yard. There are no rabbits where I live now, but I do have all kinds of cool birds outside. Yesterday I saw a hummingbird!

    SisterBatik  – Seems any animal that finds a way of living in the city involves them creating a ruckus. At least rabbits are quiet. : – )

    Melody – I love the rabbits too.  I haven't seen a hummingbird yet this summer. They are beautiful!
