Our neighborhood is a fairly quiet, sleepy one. We live on a street shaped like a horseshoe, and there are lots of families with young children around…although oddly, many of these seem to be on the opposite side of the horseshoe to us.
As we have neither kids nor dogs, it stands to reason that our yards (both front and back) would be wonderful places for bunnies to hide—and hide they do.
Yesterday morning was a first, though—none of them has EVER let either of us get so close to them. I was hard at work baking bread by the time these videos were taken, but Joe was outside prepping his bike for a long ride with his brother. Happily, he managed to grab a lovely photo and some video footage. 😀
This photo was taken with almost no zoom whatsoever—he really was that close! 😀
Same bunny, chowing on some grass in between our house and our neighbor’s.
Same bunny again—busy and hungry! Maybe we should leave our grass a little long from now on, eh? 😉
We’re busy thinking up a name for our yard bunny friend now. Joe thinks it’s a boy; I’ve yet to meet the bunny, so I’m not sure. In any case, we’re slightly worried Moo might be jealous. Joe even slipped the yard bunny a little of Moo’s greens yesterday. 😉
