Neighbourhood Wildlife



Yesterday as I was heading out of our cul-de-sac I spotted this bunny under one of the trees. I backed the car up until I was in line with him, rolled the window down, and with my never-without-it small purse size camera I took his picture - three of them to be exact - until the mailman walked by and scared him...unintentionally of course. He must have thought I was nuts leaning across the seat of my car to take a picture of a rabbit.



There are lots of these rabbits throughout the city. Poor things have seen their habitat plowed under, paved and built on but they've chosen to find various corners to stay in. Luckily there are lots of green areas and trees in Edmonton to give them shelter. This guy will be snow white soon - looks like his underside is already changing color.

We used to chase them in our 4x4. Man, can those jack rabbits motor.

Cute! They have longer faces than what I'm used to seeing the pet stores. I love animals.
