Honey Bunny

.

 I crossed paths with a hare!
My first sighting of a wild animal in Meitar!


He was interested in licking the water from a drip irrigation pipe and felt no need to run away from me.


He was so long, and pretty too.


After tiring of posing for Camera-Critters photos,  he just jumped  back up toward the row of houses that border the wadi.

You have just found one of the few animals I really like, and I am not saying this in the culinary sense!

Connie, shalom. Switzerland? Lucky you! I lived in the canton of Neuchatel several years and loved it.

Jan, yes, the ancient seed that sprouted became a national celebrity. Everyone follows its growth with pride and joy.

He is very pretty, such soft looking fur.

Janet said...

Are you sure he's not a domestic rabbit gotten loose or let go? He doesn't look like the wild hares I've seen before and I've owned nine indoor "bunnies".

We love your blog here in California with thoughts of Israel always on our hearts.

Hi Janet, shalom to you in California! Thanks for commenting. You know, I think you may be right. I was just guessing it was a hare but I'm no expert. I did think it strange that it walked out toward the wadi from the outer line of houses and showed no sign of fear of me.

What a great close encounter. Lovely little creature.

Oh, so cute! Lucky you:-)

It could be a domestic rabbit on the loose, but it looks like it's managing to make a living outdoors. The rabbits here probably wouldn't let one get too close...
