Bunny rabbit in an arroyo-wall den.


This cracks me up so much there are hardly words for it. That’s Peter (Petra?) Cottontail in his/her arroyo-wall den in the wilds of Spring Creek Basin.

Bunny rabbit in an arroyo-wall den.


There’s probably 2 feet of arroyo wall above the den, and there’s probably another 4 or 5 feet below the bottom of the pic to the bottom of the arroyo. (The long lens is great for photographing mustangs at a distance but not so handy at capturing smaller critters closer at hand!) Pretty clever and pretty safe, really, though I don’t know if the bunny is the original excavator.

In addition to Peter (Petra), Jack (rabbits) abounds (har) in our little slice of heavenly planet.

I love the wild creatures of the Basin! Bunnies are a favorite of mine.
