I mentioned a few days back that we have a growing collection of rabbits that hang out on our lawn at sunset and sunrise. Coyotes don’t want to climb the hill – that’s my theory and I’m sticking to it.
Tonight about twenty minutes after sunset (so the pictures are a bit grainy and dark) I went out to check on the sky. (Cloudy? A bit. The moon? Visible, about four days past new.)
As I opened the door, two rabbits that were right outside the door bolted for the neighbors’ bushes across the street.
These three froze, as did I. (For those of you keeping score at home, that’s five so far.)
This guy was down by the mailbox. (That’s six.)
There may have been more down around the corner on the side yard – I didn’t check because they ALL would have bolted out into traffic.
Biggest takeaway? Yep, that’s right – don’t walk barefoot on the front lawn!
