Nice bunny. Too bad there’s a dead skunk in the background.

Ha! Sorry. I do love these guys. We have snowshoe hares here, but I’ve never had the fortune to see one, just tracks in snow.

Thank you Ms. Smith. Best to look for them neat the ends of the day. That’s when they forage.
This specimen was being stalked by the Red Fox in the preceding photo, A Quick Glance. Clearly his 40 mph burst speed will serve him well avoiding the fox.
