Baby Rabbits

Signs of spring. Baby Rabbits on my lawn in Standish. There is a burrow in the shrubbery, and a hole, that we keep trying to block but always gets re-excavated, that comes out in the lawn itself. We’ve seen up to 5 kittens simultaneously over the last week, which is the usual number here, so probably represents the entire litter. Anne McBride’s book Rabbits and Hares (Whittet Books 1988) says 5 is the average number in a litter.The photo was taken with my DMC-LX5 camera through a telescope, which I join together using a ring of plastic from a cut-off calking tube. Not high-quality digi-scoping, but it works for me.
