Cindy’s camera craftily captures clover–chewing cottontail

5 08 2011

This alliteration title is for my father (who helped craft it). I was able to get within five feet of this cottontail to get this shot at Green Spring Gardens.

Here are some facts I gleaned from

• Rabbits can’t see directly in front of their nose but can see behind them (to keep an eye out for danger approaching)

• Rabbits can sleep with their eyes open (a useful trick but disconcerting for us!)

• Rabbits noses twitch 20 to 120 times per minute (faster when excited or stressed and slower when relaxed or sleeping)

Morning blooms

Lovely and lusciously luminous lilies in sweet, succulent, seductively spectacular shades of sherbet glisten in my grand and gloriously gorgeous green garden (this sentence created solely to amuse my alliteration-loving father)
