This is not a typical post for me. I am more of a plant and landscape photographer but I couldn't resist sharing my little visitor with everyone. I am almost sure this is the same bunny who frequented my yard last year but I can't say for certain. I love watching the bunnies in my yard. I love all the creatures that frequent my yard but I love the bunnies the best. Maybe because sadly a few years ago I accidentally hit a bunny while I was driving home one night. I saw the bunny and was switching lanes to avoid hitting him and he was hopping away in the opposite direction then suddenly as I got closer to him he changed directions and try as I may I was unable to avoid him. I pulled into the driveway when I got home and lost it. I was utterly devastated. This was the first and only time I have ever killed an animal. I was heartbroken and my husband had no compassion for me, well he had a little but not enough to console me. He had been following me and witnessed the incident and even now years later takes every chance to remind me of the poor fate of that bunny by calling all the little bunnies we see now "thump thumps". He does this in part now because he knows that it irritates me. But I am so thankful that my bunny friends don't all hate me now and that I am blessed to have them living in the small and I mean small patch of woods that is behind my home. Sorry if I depressed anyone.
