See how his shape outlines the foot prints?
Can you see where he moved his foot after sitting a moment. My thought is that he moved it right before he hopped. See how the middle footprint has melted the snow more. So it rested in that spot for a longer time.
Look the footprints in the snow. They have come in from the top of the wood pile into the hole rather than having a trail going right into their house at the main door.
There are some coyotes that come scouting around looking for something to eat. So down below where their main entrance is - there are no tracks at all. I didn't take a photo of that for you to see, but I should have.
Tonight my husband said, “Look there is the bunny right now outside the window.” And sure enough it was a bunny but it wasn’t Black Bunny is was Rosamund. I decided I would go outside and see if I could get Rosamund’s picture to show you. I quietly let myself out of my studio door and walked toward their house in the woodpile. I saw Rosamund sitting right in front. I decided to get just a little closer and Rosamund scooted under a bush. So I walked over to the side of the bush and zippo off she went as fast as she could go. And then bingo there went Black Bunny out from somewhere close by running as fast as he could back into the yard. I went back into the house and into my husband’s study and there I saw Black Bunny just sitting and eating. I took this picture. It was getting dark so he is a little hard to see. See if you can find him….
Before you know it your wonderful little dog or cat is right there for you to pet and hold and love. Wild animals are not like that are they? They are hard to find, showing themselves only once and a while even though you wish you could hold them in your arms. (For Parents: And that brings us to the word "metaphor". Do you know what metaphor means?)
