WOW!!- This Is Sooooo Comfy!! - Baby Bunny - NZ by 


A young wild rabbit found trapped in an old shed… hard to resist a few photos and amazing at how calm this little one was posing so beautifully in Keith’s hands… I know that I should not have released him back into the wild, they are considered huge pests in New Zealand… BUT I could not help myself… the wild is where he belongs….

DEDICATED TO ALL OUR RB FRIENDS…. HAPPY EASTER…
Rabbits were introduced to New Zealand by Captain Cook in 1777, and other settlers brought more for food, fur and sport. Wild rabbits munch the best grass in pasture, damage young trees and create a nuisance in vegetable gardens and orchards. The saying ``breed like rabbits’’ comes from the fact that rabbits can produce up to 30 young throughout the year, although the main breeding season is spring to early summer. A female usually mates again within 12 hours of giving birth. Even though domesticated and wild rabbits are cousins, there are big differences. For one, rabbits in the wild will know how to lookout for themselves whereas his cousin will not. In the wild, rabbits are definitely prey animals. That is why they have powerful hind legs, to help them escape. Wild rabbits can reach speeds up to 24 miles per hour. They also use their front legs to burrow underground to hide.

The Easter Bunny or Easter Rabbit (sometimes Spring Bunny in the U.S. is a character depicted as a rabbit bringing Easter eggs, who sometimes is depicted with clothes. In legend, the creature brings baskets filled with colored eggs, candy and sometimes also toys to the homes of children, and as such shows similarities to Father Christmas, as they both bring gifts to children on the night before their respective holiday. Eggs, like rabbits and hares, are fertility symbols of antiquity. Since birds lay eggs and rabbits and hares give birth to large litters in the early spring, these became symbols of the rising fertility of the earth at the Vernal Equinox.

CHALLENGE WINNER PETS ARE US (JULY AVATAR)

My fascination with birds began as a child and almost 50 years down the track my love for our feathered friends has not diminished. Once we moved to Tranquillity (our little country retreat) my passion for birds, all nature and wildlife became a digital reality through the lens of my camera.
