Can You Spot the Bunny?

There really is a wild bunny in this picture, but he was a little camera shy and took off just as the Bag Lady snapped his picture.

I think I've seen that little bunny bum before.. in my neck of the woods. At least yours have enough sense to run. :)

We have lots of bunnies that love to eat in Marcy's back yard.

Hilary - I'm not sure if it is the same bunny that I keep seeing, and I'm not sure if it's all that smart, because it darted out in front of me the other day and I almost nailed him! Fortunately I was on the look-out for him/her!

Gail - this is the first year in a long time that there have been lots of bunny sightings!

I see it!

I've been keeping an eye on a wild bunny on the university campus that seems to have a favorite morning spot in the clover near the chapel.

Wild rabbits are fun.

I saw it immediately! What do I win??
The Nameless Man and I were quite surprised to see a bunny running across the street in front of our condo a couple of weeks ago. We almost live in downtown Calgary for heaven's sake...

I'm glad he had sense enough to stay in the shadow of the trees. I don't think I've seen a single rabbit since I moved here--but I've seen lots and lots of hawks.

Wild bunnies can be like that. Good catch.

the Bag Lady said...

BG - hubby said that wild rabbits were very abundant around these parts when he was a child - they used to catch the babies and make pets out of them.
Haven't seen any for years, so it's nice to spot them periodically.

Sparrow - my sister in Edmonton has bunnies living right beside her apartment building. And my friend in Calgary says they are abundant there. Apparently, they are only scarce out here in the country!

Carla - glad to hear the Tornado has good eyes!

Mazy Anne in Kentucky - we have lots of hawks, and lots of coyotes, too. I just hope there are lots of mice.....

dfLeah - they can, can't they?

Cutie! I haven't seen any bunnies yet this year. The squirrels are out roaming in abundance, though.

Missicat said...

I see his tail! What do I win??

messymimi said...

We get squirrels, coons, possums, snakes, turtles, and the occasional rat wandering up from the creek, but the only rabbits tend to be pets that escaped -- or were dumped :(.

Glad you spotted this one.

the Bag Lady said...

Sagan - lots of squirrels here, too.

Missicat - oops, don't have a prize! Guess you'll just have to take pride in the fact that you see him!

messymimi - we don't have half of those critters you have - there are no rats, or coons, or possoms or turtles. We have little garter snakes occasionally, and squirrels. Lots of squirrels!

I'm pretty sure it's the same one my husband and 2 boys chased away from the garden last week.

the Bag Lady said...

kcinnova - oh, dear. If it is, he'll be happy where he is now, I hope!

Redbush said...

I see his heels, but, very hard to spot! Very cute photo! Will there be a large amount of sightings this year, I wonder?

the Bag Lady said...

Redbush - I hope so! I'd like to see them come back in this area, at least a little.
