Wordless Wednesday...Too Late for Easter?

 

One of the benefits of our early morning walks has always been catching wildlife searching for their early morning breakfast. 

 

We saw this little guy the other morning and he was just as surprised as we were. The look on his face seemed to say “Am I too late for Easter?”

 

 

If you want to see what the rabbits, squirrels, deer, and other wildlife do when you’re not watching try to go out when they’re out...early morning or just before sunset. 



An early-morning walk is a blessing for the whole day. Henry David Thoreau

Hi Kathy,

I love seeing wildlife as well.  We have 3 rabbits in our yard at many different times and it makes our dogs go nuts!

Hi Jeffrey- when we had our Brittany, she would sit for hours by the pool stalking a squirrel up in the palm tree.

HI Brian- they really are. My god-mother told me that my favorite nursery tale was Peter Rabbit.

We also have a bountiful supply of rabbits in Kentlands, our home community.

Kathy,

The bunnies have no idea or care what our human calendar says.. I love your quotes, and it reminded of one of my favorite quotes of Thich Nhat Hanh on walking,

“Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet.”

Hi Ron and Alexandra- I love that quote!!!  If we open our eyes, there's so much to see that nature offers us.

Kathy, I have two that live in my backyard, and I feed them carrots, so they come to me.  So fun!

Good morning Kathy! Maybe too late for Easter, but my relatives in Mississippi would say just in time for lunch.

This year I spent Easter alone without any fanfare.  And, yesterday, I momentarily forgot that and wondered when the holiday would be coming!  What a crazy year we've had.  Perfect for a late arriving rabbit to appear!

Hi Myrl- It's hard to look back at 2020 and realize that we've moved past that year and are already in another one.

Hello Kathy,  you are lucky,  for some reason we do not have rabbits in our yard but we do see some once in awhile at neighbors.

Hi Will- perhaps they've heard what a great chef you are! LOL

So cute! 

I wouldn't mind running into that little guy on a walk. Much better than the alligator pics you used to share!

Hi Sharon- I haven't seen any gators here but have seen more snakes than I have in years!  I don't do snakes. 

Apr 14, 2021 03:59 PM

No, I would not want to see snakes either!

Wildlife is fun to watch Kathy as long as they venture away from the backyard garden!

Hi Wanda- I get it. We had issues with the iguanas eating our flowers in South Florida and I can remember planting some caladiums once and the next day the deer had helped themselves to all of them.

Oh so cute. You really have to love nature. When you ask if he is late brings to mind Leo J Carrol  story of  Alice in Wonderland

Hi Hannah- Oh yes, I hadn't thought of that.

Hi Kathy we have lots of bunnies in our area and it's so much fun when one or two come to visit us in the backyard.  They've got a lot of good stuff to eat back there!!

Hi Anna- I've never seen a bunny in our yard but we have possum, raccoons and sadly...skunks.

We have always been pleased to see these.  Not so pleased when they were presented as gifts without faces by the outdoor cat, but now that he is inside, we see a lot more of them.

Morning Kathy,

It has been awhile since I've taken a early morning walk.  That will end next month, when the season really starts.

We see their droppings all over the yard, as well as those of deer, and some unrecognized.  They love the fresh leaves of the young flower plants.

Hello Kathy,

That bunny looks to be of the over-sized variety ... or perhaps it is an illusion in the photo and video.
