As I sat at the kitchen table making salsa, out of the corner of my eye I saw a blur of movement in the grass. It was a spring rabbit hopping across the back yard. Then he darted behind a tree and I couldn't see him. Then he came out from behind the tree and I hurried to get my camera.
He stayed in one place for quite some time munching on a particular plant in the grass. It must have been real tasty. I was thinking rabbits probably instinctively know which plants are the most nutritious at certain times of the year just like the gopher tortoise do. You can see our lawn is full of various weeds and it's those which I think are the most nutritious for the creatures living here.
At one point the rabbit turned to face away from me and I got to see his little white cottontail. Unfortunately my camera battery died and I didn't get a photo of his cottontail. One of these days I'll invest in a better camera which has a telephoto and I'll be able to get better quality photos to show you. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
