Back in June I was out helping water our garden when I caught sight of a fuzzy little puff ball in the grass. For a moment there It thought the tiny little puff might have been a piece of lint that got blown towards are yard, but it was too big to be just a mere ball of laundered lint. To my surprise it galloped a bit when I got near it, but stopped short of fully fleeing.
BUNNY! Well it was a rather small bunny. It looked practically newborn since it was half the size of my palm. I bent over to get a closer look when out of the corner of my eye another bunny of equal proportions popped out.
The two were probably hanging around the garden when my mom hit the hose and drenched their home. One of them was wet which is kinda why I thought it was a newborn, but they were really too agile and hairy to be literally just born.
I showed my sister and she actually picked one up though I tried to tell her that may not have been the best idea. Still, we though it would be good to put them closer to the garden and hopefully they’ll find their way back to their nest. As we did that, a THIRD bunny galloped from the grass over our driveway.
Wow, those things were popping up like crazy. At that point I thought it was a crime against nature to let so many inexplicably cute bunnies to escape my lens. The two bunnies were resting comfortably in the bushes in our garden, protected by their thorny brambles while the third bunny was hopelessly trapped under our SUV. After a couple of shots, I tried to coax the tiny bunny out of hiding and led him over to the grass.
I haven’t seen much of them since, but there have been huge rabbits hopping around our back yard. I’m guessing they’re the parents. But in this awful heat wave we’ve been having I wouldn’t be surprised if they stayed put underground until things start getting better. (Like that’s going to happen anytime soon)
