Two ears cast shadows, two don't

Richard Schear photos   
Photos taken earlier this year, before the snow finally melted.

I suspect the rabbit on the left has seen Dick and Lindy before, and knows they're harmless.
The other rabbit is trying to make itself look very small, so they won't notice it is there.

Posted for  Shadow Shot Sunday, a meme that
has us chasing ephemeral shadowy things, like wild rabbits.
Hosted every week by Tracy at Hey Harriet!

Good thing they are well insulated, you wouldn't catch me laying in the snow.

Kate said...

They look like they are hunkered down to keep warm.

Lovely bunny ShadowShots! I can't get close enough to our snowshoe rabbits to get a good shot. Ours still have white ears and feet!! Happy SSS.

Ralph said...

The bunnies have been waiting for some sun to warm their dark fur, and have unearthed themselves for the Albertan spring. The offer a look of shadows themselves, created by this solar bliss. Sweet creatures and little snow makes an appealing photo!

I am amazed that they stayed there and posed for you. Perhaps they are half frozen!!! Poor things, surely they feel the cold!!

I'm so relieved that the snow is only a memory this close to May!

A SEEKER OF SHADOWS

A seeker of shadows, they say,
Will keep her eyes peeled night and day
For resident shades
That haunt the dark glades
And never come outside to play.

@ Magical Mystical — I'm hoping it's only a memory here. There's mixed rain and snow in the forecast for tonight, and I've seen snow as late as May 5. People who have lived in Alberta longer than my 10 years tell me there isn't a month that hasn't had at least some snow, in their experience.

that snow looks so deep and crisp and sparkling - hope it has all gone now though!

Friko said...

Do you allow rabbits in the garden? They are such destructive pests to have around.
I am happy to watch them in the fields.

Dianne said...

Oh! they must be cold - love the bunny shots.

darling bunnies

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Friko — we've had rabbits in our yard for years, and they've never done any harm. These photos, however, were taken in the countryside a short distance away from our house.

Please don't tell me you just took these cute bunny shots! Snow!?

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Francisca — I just had to double-check. Yep, I put a line in there saying the photos were taken earlier this year. However, we had "mixed rain and snow" in our forecast for tonight, although it has been changed to just rain now. Whew.

Nice shadows. We have a bunny nest in our landscaping and I'll be posting some photos Tuesday. The babies are getting big and have fur. Hopefully, the neighborhood cat won't find them.

Francisca said...

Oops... missed the fine print! :-) I saw the lower portion, though... And now I got to see the sweet bunnies again. xo

Kay L. Davies said...

@ Francisca — I edited this post and put the fine print into boldface so no one else will miss it. Thanks!
