The Jackrabbit and a Snowbank

Our resident jackrabbit hopped right into a snowbank. Silly wabbit!
This Christmas storm is continuing on today. 3 inches of snow fell last night and it is still coming down. I guess we’re up to about 10 inches of the white stuff on the ground. I’ve got head out and feed the cows in a bit. I’m betting I’ll look just as confused and bright-eyed and covered in snow like the jackrabbit in an hour or so.
Happy winter y’all!!


Jackrabbit in the Garden

This guy is part of the reason I will not be planting a veggie garden this year. He lives in my backyard. He’s cute though and I like how the light illuminates his pink ears.
I’ll try to have a container garden on the deck but I haven’t figured out the best system or location yet for a large garden here at our new place. I fed the deer and rabbits one unprepared year out on the ranch. I planted a small garden that should have fed ME for a couple months. Instead I got one salad out of it and the resident wildlife were sitting fat and happy.
Happy Friday everyone! Hope you have better luck at gardening than I have had. 🙂


About that Jackrabbit Yesterday

The jackrabbit is built for speed.

When this guy jumped out from the brush in front of me, I almost tripped.

Alert ears and elbows was all I could see.

He stopped to see if I was following him. I didn’t have a chance of catching up so I stood still and just followed him with my lens.

He was completely airborne with every hop.

He stayed along the fence line…

And down the rabbit hole he dove!


After the Rain

A creepy crawly insect was enjoying the flavor of this coneflower/black-eyed susan. (the internet has confused me as to what kind of wildflower this is)

When I looked up from my spot in the tall grass, I saw the elusive jackrabbit.  These little guys are so hard to photograph because they move so fast. I mean as soon as I spot one, poof, he’s gone. But this guy stuck around long enough for one click.
