After the rain ...

There are FOUR jackrabbits outside right now. No confrontations or other dominance stuff going on between 'em either ... because the one nearest me has more heft than the other three and is totally focused on grazing, while the others give an impression of skinny gangly teenagerness and are doing just as much playful skittering about as eating, I suspect what I'm seeing is a female and her current half-grown litter (unlike "regular" rabbits, jackrabbits are born furred, open-eyed and ready to run, so even one-month-olds would be far more advanced in growth than their distant cousins)

If you take the thumbnails through three or four levels of clicking, you should get a decent view (someday I'll escalate to a camera with greater than 3x zoom)
