Wildlife Weekend and Aww Mondays


The weather on Sunday was a bit dramatic with
the huge clouds in the sky......
I spent some time just sitting on the deck watching
the world go by.


As I was going outside I spotted Mr Tom Turkey
 outside the dining room window having a
morning snack under the bird feeder....


Of course the robins are always on the lawn 
looking for a nice tasty worm to eat.  


Wow what a surprise ! The local Jackrabbit hopped
by and didn't realize how close I was.



When he did spot me he hopped away a bit....
look how much longer his back legs are.
All the better to run away.....


He ( or she...not sure ) stopped- looked at me one more time
and speedily hopped away.....it's amazing how
the animals here really do blend in when not moving.
Awwww he's pretty darn cute!

Such a beautiful rest spot! I love rabbits, we see them often here, in fact one of my cats carried in an adorable baby cottontail a few weeks back (photos on my blog)! Thankfully, we rescued it and returned it safely to it's home. I have raised both a cottontail and a jackrabbit as babies, too sweet!

There's a lot to be said for watching the world go by. I've made a lifetime's work of it. That you were able to snap and share such wonderful photos of your own world for us is a bonus. Thanks.
Have a nice day.
