Flora and Fauna

For the past six weeks or so, we have had a family of rabbits living in our bushes. We usually see them in the evenings when they come out to play in the sprinklers and munch on the grass. I was very excited about our visitors and kept telling Andy that we should get a pet bunny, until a few days ago when I noticed that someone has been eating my flowers. They are tall lilies, so from the ground to about 2/3 of the way up are nibbled clear to the stem. The only parts left are what the rabbits couldn't reach on their hind legs. After losing my pretty petals, the little things aren't quite as endearing. Calvin loves them though, and it is fun to watch them. They're adorable and seem to have become oblivious to our comings and goings.

This is Andy being artistic, playing with the different lenses. Bunny in focus, Calvin is just a blur.
