A Rabbit On The Run

Hello Friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Bunny Rabbit 61120” and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The big blue truck rolls slowly down the single lane road along Peter’s Creek. I have been out looking for something to photograph for my nightly post. The little bunny rabbit just happened to break through the tall weeds and find himself in the path of Ol’Blue. Fortunately, I was only at idle speed. For a moment his instinct to freeze overtook him and it was only after I came to a full stop that he realized that he was exposed. A few cautious hops and was in the comfort of his tall weeds again. I idled forward a bit and caught up with him. He sat motionless for long enough that I get the shot. The as suddenly as he came he slipped deeper into the weeds and I could only track him by the movement of tops of weeds. I moved the truck to intercept him only find that he’d already beaten me there. I exited the cab of the truck in an effort to catch him in the long lens but he was gone again. As I turned he bolted from the weeds next to my foot. Wait… how’d he get back over here? I turned to where I saw him last and stepped forward. Suddenly the entire little plot of weeds exploded into a field of motion as a dozen or so rabbits showed off their speed. They had all been just a few feet away the whole time and the whole time they were completely hidden. Now I’m sure that there’s some snickers in the rabbit hole tonight as they each other about the blind giant in the humongous blue machine and how they fooled him so easily. And how they reminded him that just because you don’t see something doesn’tmean it’s not there.

Unafraid

Hello friends! Tonight’s feature image is titled “Winter Rain In The Forest 22520″and is available for purchase by the instructions at the bottom of the article.

The rain falls lightly on the dead leaves as I ease the big blue truck up Panther Mountain. This time of year good photo ops are bit of s challenge and so I have to drive a little farther and look a little harder to bring fresh images. The cold rain is almost like a mist and it floats as much as it falls. On the edge of the trail a rabbit disappears silently into the brambles.

Maybe it’s the news and all the scary stories or maybe it was seeing a rabbit on panther mountain but it brought to mind the Pipe Smoking Rabbit story.

I first encountered the legend in the movie “The Edge” as Anthony Hopkins explains why a paddle has a panther painted on one side and a rabbit smoking a pipe on the other. Rather than try to type out the whole story, here’s a link to the scene.

The rabbit character in the Native American stories i s a trickster much like Jack from a myriad of European stories who survives in his wits. The moral of the story is that the secret to overcoming fear and panic is logical thought. The pipe being a symbol of taking time to think and problem solve before acting. I have noticed that in my own life I only made mistakes that got me deeper into trouble when I reacted out of fear and worry verses problem solving before acting.

I looked deep into the brambles to see if I could get a clean image of the rabbit in his little thorny fortress and just as I saw him I could have sworn that he winked into the camera before he vanished behind the canes.

The Rabbit Has No fear

The Bunny

The office of my day job is located in a reclaimed strip mine. What was once spoiled land is now a virtual wildlife preserve on the edge of the city. This little bunny lives raises it’s family on our parking lot. Every morning she can be seen munching on the clover with her brood. I wouldn’t say that she’s tame but she is accustomed to the presence of humanity. She actually allowed me to get pretty close for this shot. She had developed a little bit of trust in the workers who came to hwr home every day. Trust is a very fragile quality for as soon as I moved she took off like nobody’s business. I’ll continue to watch her and her babies and who knows, perhaps one day she’ll trust me enough to get even better shots.
