Eastern cottontail (Sylvilagus floridanus) ~ a common enough critter hereabouts, reviled by many for its love of tender new garden plants (remember Peter Rabbit ~ though he was the British variety ~ & Mr. McGregor?), but beloved in this neck ot the woods. We see much interaction between this bun & our famous squirrels, especially Lady Grey.
Not sure why she’s not just another Bunny… maybe because she’s MINE! Miss Doonifer in the myrtle… taken last year. But the myrtle bloomed all winter this time; we had very little snow & no cold weather to speak of, so this patch looks now as it did last summer. Anyway, a wee offering for Easter 2012.
