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
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
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
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
“Hello Rabbit’, he said, ‘is that you?’
‘Let’s pretend it isn’t,’ said Rabbit, ‘and see what happens.”
~A. A. Milne
… 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.
