I have rabbits always laying stretched out in the shade where the earth is damp and cool from the drips. Especially in the wells of the citrus trees. I love how the ears glow with the light.

The ground squirrel with mesquite pod is so sweet.
It is a stay in the shade weekend !

Happy Weekend
cheers, parsnip

Very handsome fellows all of them!

In German we have a name for those big ears: we call them 'spoons'!

Thérèse said...

We can feel they are enjoying their life at home.

those 'rabbits' have such long ears; rather like a hare ...lovely to see

Janie said...

The rabbits seem to hold their ground to keep their shady spot. Smart of them.
Love the pic of the ground squirrel with the pod.

Just came back from our trip to Maine and am so glad the monsoon has begun! And I'm sure the critters are happy as well:)

So funny you posted that squirrel picture, it is almost identical to one I posted recently, we could have been standing side by side :)
