Not Exactly Peter Cottontail....

We see all kinds of critters eating at the deer feeder that's a hundred or so feet west of our motorhome, so it didn't surprise me at all to see the Easter Bunny having breakfast out there this morning....
Okay...  so this isn't quite the Easter Bunny...  nor is he a cottontail...
This big Black-tailed Jack Rabbit was enjoying an early morning meal until....
A big doe decided she wanted to have breakfast as well.
The jackrabbit hunkered down a bit, but didn't hop off...
That doe wasn't interested in the jack, she just wanted some of that corn that comes out of that feeder.
As soon as those hoofs had cleared his body, he was out of there mighty fast!

And those jacks sure can run!
Guess they have to if they're gonna deliver all those eggs on Easter morning.

That's All For Today!

  1. Boy do I have Jack Rabbit stories. Maybe when I get my computer back I may post some of them, if I don't forget.

    1. I forgot to say what fantastic pictures you get. Patients and a good camera are a must. Guess I will be looking for a new digital camera with more than a 3X zoom.

  2. When we lived in Nevada, there were kamikaze jack rabbits. They'd hunker by the side of the road and at the last possible moment hurl themselves in front of the car. They'd come dashing out of the sage brush and scare the heck out of me when I was driving to work in the morning. They woke me up a lot faster than coffee could.

  3. If I was that rabbit, I would want to avoid those sharp hooves.

  4. I'm thinking he needs all the extra food he can find to build up the energy to meet his appointed rounds.

  8. We had deer tracks in our garden this morning. We frequently see the tracks but only rarely see the deer. Last week we had a fox in the yard, and later a neighbor reported his chicken coop had been robbed of one chicken. I enjoy seeing the wildlife, but I get very protective of our baby quail.
