Rabbit ~ Saturday Critters

Sharing another critter photo with the Saturday Critters Challenge.

Sitting here looking out in my backyard I saw a rabbit. I have not seen one since last summer. It was a good sign spring is close. Hopefully before too long I will see more. They like eating the patches of clover in the yard. 

Did you know that wild rabbits survive the winter by creating burrows in the ground or using thick shrubberies to protect themselves from the cold temperatures. 

Some rabbits create their own burrows, while others will utilize abandoned burrows created by other rabbits or small creatures.

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

  1. Yes, I like rabbits, unfortunately they are a pest in New Zealand as they are a threat to our environment.
    People do have them as pets, and they are somewhat disapproved of.
    Whole South Island fields have plenty of rabbits with farmers in tears as the rabbits eat every blade of grass.
    They were introduced here as meat on the table but became a pest.
    NZ is a model, about what happens to an environment with colonisation and so little planning.

  2. I do not know how with you only in winter, you see a rabbit in winter … apparently, we do not sleep in winter … I do not see him in the yard, but I see him in the nearby meadows
