About half grown. Great ears Smiling . Been hanging around about a month now. Not sure if it was born in the yard or not, but it has a couple of grooves where it can be found when it's not out and about. There's a cottontail around too, but not every day like this jackrabbit.

Geez, I haven't seen a jackrabbit in years and he just sat the posing
Do you have holes drilled in that terracotta pot?
Thanks

Yes, Jolana. It's tedious to drill them, but I do it. I had to drill one in the bottom of a ceramic pot this week. It's done and I have the plant, but the plant is still in the plastic container. I'm sooo slow sometimes. I've taken to making the slings like the other one in the background simply because it's faster than drilling.

Here are a couple taken Saturday. I think it's the same one, but it's pretty much grown now and I have an extended family hanging around Smiling and I can't really tell them apart. They graze on a couple of potted plants, but mostly they just eat grasses in the yard. These were taken about 15' from where the one posted earlier was taken. They are so goofy! I could take photos every day if I would carry the camera around.

Get a load of those ears!

Yeah, great ears! He was a hit with out of town guests this past weekend. They had never seen one up close and they all got within 2-4' from him. His relatives refused to come in the yard while the strangers were visiting but they made up for it yesterday. My yard was a staging area for some kind of convention, I think Smiling .

For the visitors? Yes, but not nearly as exciting as the invasion of copperheads the night before they were set to go home. Three within about 20 minutes all in the area where everyone sits in the lawn chairs relaxing. Subsequent to the snake event, all relaxing took place indoors Smiling . After the flooding it pays to be extra watchful, though they can be here anytime the weather is warm enough. It made all the cautions I'd been throwing out real. It seems to never sink in without such an event to illustrate why I give the warnings.

Don't like the copperheads!

I don't either, we had to deal with them a lot when we lived in Bastrop county. No fun
