Sitting by the road

This little rabbit looked content sitting in a shaded white clover patch beside the road.

“To sit in the shade on a fine day and look upon verdure is the most perfect refreshment.”  ~Jane Austen

Around the corner

As we rounded a curve in the road, there sat two rabbits — an older one and a younger one.  The older rabbit quickly hopped away, but the younger rabbit lingered there a little longer and continued to enjoy the delicious grass.

“Life is so extraordinary.  Wonderful surprises are just around the most unexpected corners.”  ~Rosamunde Pilcher

Photobombed by a squirrel

Recently, while out for a walk, I spotted a rabbit sitting quietly in some grass.  I was in the process of taking a few photos of the bunny, when a gray squirrel unexpectedly came bounding into view.  I guess he was interested in having his picture taken too.  🙂

“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”  ~Marc Riboud


Afternoon snack

Recently, we came upon this rabbit that was leisurely nibbling away on lush, green grass along the roadside.  He seemed to have a preference for the tenderest and tastiest blades, and was carefully using his nose to graze along the ground in search of a delectable afternoon snack.

“To know what you prefer instead of humbly saying Amen to what the world tells you you ought to prefer is to have kept your soul alive.”  ~Robert Louis Stevenson

Face to face


While out for a walk on our country road, I suddenly came face to face with a startled rabbit.  He was frozen in his tracks and was sitting like a statue with one eye intently gazing at me.  Clearly, he had not expected this encounter.  After sizing each other up, I proceeded forward, and the rabbit took off like a shot.

“Courage is facing your fears.  Stupidity is fearing nothing.”  ~Todd Bellemare

The Rabbit

… He sat down close where I could see,
And his big still eyes looked hard at me,

His big eyes bursting out of the rim,
And I looked back very hard at him.
