Bold Bunny

No, that's not the title of a new anthropomorphic superhero character, but rather the description I gave this fine fellow, who has appeared at the edge of our driveway -- no more than thirty feet from our front door -- twice in the past two days.

And he (or is it she? I can't tell) has let me walk right up until I am just about six or seven feet away. If I stop moving, the bunny will sit there and we'll just look at each other. But then, if I make a move to, say, crouch down to get a better perspective for a photo, he'll be off into the bushes in a trice. (What is a trice, anyway? I should Google that.)

I don't know if this is the same bunny as mentioned in my previous "Rainbows and Bunnies" post, but I guess it could be. I hope he (or she) keeps showing up. -- PL

P.S. I forgot to mention that the second time "Bold Bunny" appeared, it was not only me standing that close, but Jeannine as well, and our big dog Parker... and the bunny was STILL chillaxin'!

P.P.S. Hmmm... maybe instead of "Bold Bunny", I should call him... "Usagi"!

Usagi was the first thing that came to my mind when I saw the pictures. Such a fitting name!

I *bet* if you leave him some food nearby he'll make that spot a regular priority.

I showed you this, right Peter? Stan really liked it when I sent it to him. :)

and Yes, you should call him Little Usagi.
