After I'd ooooo-ed and cooed over this wee might that is barely a week old not even having its eyes open yet, I went on to the next. (My friend helped the baby back to its nest by the way, gently depositing it back snug with its brothers and sisters.
Reminds me of Beatrix Potter's story of Peter Rabbit that my dad used to read to me.
Are you cooing yet?
Today it's rare that someone would take photographs of these babies instead of calling an exterminator. Way too often humans feel that nature is invading "our" space.
On the other hand there are many, not the everyone in the world yet, but still many, who respect and honour life at all stages and in its myriad forms. My friend is obviously one (t whom I send out big thanks yous for these wonderful photographs) and so are you if you read nature blogs.
Baby rabbits bring out the oo and ahh factor in many people but they are no different than baby anything, just perhaps more appealing than a baby caterpillar or snake or shark for that matter. Nonetheless, all are part of the many wonderful ecosystems that make up this planet. We are blessed when we can share the awe that new life inspires and also blessed when we can work to help preserve it and the planet.
May you be inspired and blessed today by something new and wonderful.
