Rabbits On The Nature Trail
When I got to the park there were rabbits everywhere. It looked like they were having a rabbit convention or something. There were dozens of them. I loved the squirrels from back in Michigan, but these rabbits today were a very good replacement.
As soon as I got out of the truck I got several rabbit pictures that were just okay, but I thought I could make a post out of them. But then after the first bend in the main trail I saw the two rabbits in today's pictures. I don't know how anyone else would rate the first picture, but I really love it. I consider it one of my best ever.
Even the dog cooperated with me. She was on her best behavior and didn't make even a hint of a move toward these two rabbits even once. She knew they were there because she was staring right at them. But she was a very good girl today.
The grass the rabbits are sitting in is right in the middle of the trail. They mow the trails into the tall grass at the park. These trails are about due for another mowing. This is how they do the trails all over the area. We have plenty of tall grass around here.
I saw a few other things that I'll post about in the future. Maybe I'll see even better things on future trips here. From past experience I know sometimes I see a lot and sometimes I see very little. But the great thing about going to the nature parks a lot is that you never really know what you'll see.
I have some other non-nature park stuff that I may post next. It's something that I've wanted to do for years. Now I finally began this little thing. It's not quite as fun as seeing lots of animals, but I still like it a lot. Until then I hope you enjoy my rabbit pictures. I'll talk to you later.
