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!
Thanks to Sandee for Aww Mondays!
For more Awwww Mondays go here:
Have a great week everyone!!



  1. Nice photos! I absolutely love the first one. I'm feeling inspired now... :)

  2. 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!
