Hare, Foot, and a Fly

When we got to the garden last week, we saw this rabbit giving us the eye. 
He looks guilty, don't you think? When I took the picture I thought we only had one cute little rabbit looking for a garden snack. When I uploaded pictures to the computer I saw another pesky rabbit peeking out of the weeds. Little nibblers!
We also found evidence of another intruder. Mr. Raccoon was long gone, but he left easily identifiable footprints.
While Hubs runs the tiller, I get to scour the area for photo ops. I found this Damsel Fly resting on a leaf...
...and this Dragonfly hanging out on a weed next to the pond.

Linking to  Saturday's Critters

I so approve of how wisely you used your time while your husband worked the tiller. ;))

Rabbits and squirrels always look guilty! I'm sure the coons would, too, if you ever caught them. Nice dragonfly!

The damselfly is just a lovely shot. So finely focused and well captured colour. Poor hubby working while you enjoy!

Oh those wraskly wabbits. First they eat my Crocus flowers and now they are nibbling on Pansys and who knows what else. But they are so cute. LOL MB

I had a rabbit nibbling clover the other morning ( always a sign it's time to mow the lawn, lol ! )

Love your pretty dragon fly shot!

I like your job around the yard better than I would your husband's! Rabbits are just cute to me, but I no longer raise a garden!

Your dragonfly shot is wonderful, and that would be my favorite today. My next best has to be the cool raccoon footprints you found!! I saw the other bunny right away, maybe they are a pair.

Gunilla Bäck said...

They may look guilty, but they're adorable. Love the dragonfly too.

Terri @ Backward B Ranch said...

Ia agree! Guilty! Great shots of the dragonfly and damsel fly!

Christian Weiß said...

Haven't seen a dragon fly or a damsel fly in a long time but we do have a native rabbit.

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

It's the best time of year for photos, isn't it?! Especially when hubby is busy!

Rose said...

If you get to score this many good shots while your Hubby tills the garden, I think I would till more often;)

Marie said...

Beautiful photos of lots of interesting visitors!

Halcyon said...

Bunnies are overrunning Berlin! But they are cute, aren't they? :)
