Monday Bunday - beautiful baby bunnies

There's a warren of rabbits near the hotel near Edinburgh Zoo. Lots of young rabbits at the moment:



and they really are this close to a wall by the side of a pavement of a busy road

I hope their fur protects them from nettle stings

Meanwhile, the older bunnies were relaxing in the shade

I guess we're all suckers for bunnies. Well, maybe not Farmer MacPherson.

I saw a large rabbit warren from the tour bus when I was in Britain years ago. It was in the corner of a field surrounded by a rock fence.
I just loved it! There were bunnies of all sizes doing everything that bunnies do. Our US bunnies just nest under shrubs and raid gardens.

There`s a family of baby rabbits in the field hedgerow now. I love to watch them playing when they don`t know I`m watching.

R these wild? Or maybe domestic that were once released? They look well fed!

Crafty Green Poet said...

Jennifer, TexWis, eileen, Lady Lilith - adorable indeed!

Mr Mick and jade - I could have watched them all day, very cute

Bill - yes farmers aren't so keen on the bunnies!

Ms Sparrow - it was only recently i realised that US bunnies don't make burrows

Naquillity - yes i love the older ones all stretched out...

Dartford Warbler - these ones know they're being watched and don't seem to care

Rabbits Guy - they're wild, the warren has been there for years. They sometimes get leftover vegetables from the hotel and maybe passers by give then treats sometimes....

Adorable bunnies. I am sorry about the development (in the post above). Hope it can be avoided somehow.
