This adorable baby rabbit sat for a long time on the edge of my driveway. I had plenty of time to go in and get my camera, and I worried that it was injured, sick or abandoned. When I got very close it started hopping and I eventually saw the mother near the side of the house, so I didn’t interfere. It’s the first time I’ve seen a baby rabbit near my home (Dunnellon, Florida, U.S.A).

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    How sweet! Melts the heart!

  • Thanks so much, Bonnie. It sat still for so very long, I was a little worried, but then I saw the mother. I didn’t see either this morning, so I hope they were reunited happily.

    Adorable! Our last chance at Internet access this morning before we leave Erie, Pa. – nothing at the Finger Lakes has turned up so far but I’m crossing my fingers. Won’t have time to do much except clean out email, but that will help!

  • Have a great time. It’s a beautiful area to visit. Thanks for your comment, my friend.
