Can you spot the rabbit?

Spot the rabbit

Not a good photo I know…. taken from far with a cellphone.

I don’t find rabbits, they find me! Now if I believed in dark psychic energy I could spin you a story of the supernatural here. But I don’t. I believe in coincidence.

This little one has come to live in the bottom of the retaining wall. I take him a carrot 2x per day plus a bowl of pellets but of course there are grass and twigs to eat too. I am this time round not trying to tame him, although I would love to cuddle him. But he is safe where he is. He knows me by now but I am not trying to touch him. I want him to know some 2 legged beings are nasty and he should avoid.

I LOVE RABBITS!

The human Legacy

23 Comments

Every single piece of synthetic plastic that has ever been manufactured since 1950 is still in existence today, as each one takes thousands of years to break down. A recent study has indicated that plastic litter can become fused with rocks and other materials to form a new material: plastiglomerate. This material could very well become a permanent part of the geological record, forever marking humanity’s impact on the world. The results of the report were published in the journal of the Geological Society of America, GSA Today.

Plastic Rocks

 

What humans do to the Earth !&%$@**

 

A while ago I put up a photo of a glass beach, all the glass that were dumped and eventually formed pebbles over the years.

Another interesting phenomenon – and this would be our legacy in the fossil record!

Birds and Brilliant animals

We always think that animals are not as smart as we are. Maybe we have it all wrong. Because animals understand us but we have a hard time understanding animals so we assume that they are not as clever and they do not have deep emotions.. I watch Hasie (our rabbit) he is so aware of his environment, if you move the garden broom he knows and he checks. If you stroke him (which he absolutely loves)  he goes to roll in the sand belly up because he does not want to smell like a human. There is method in his ‘madness’. Survival!

The following photo is not mine and the story comes from a newspaper.

 

Any food lover will tell you it’s good to be open to different taste sensations, so who can blame these inquisitive birds for having a peck at a new dish.

However, when the delicacy is ferocious alligator and you are a thin-legged spoonbill it might be wise to let another diner take the first bite.

These incredible rare pictures capture the moment a flock of the beautiful pink-hued birds discovered the large reptile gliding through their watering hole.

The images of the Roseate breed spoonbills were taken at the Murrells Inlet in Huntington Beach State Park just metres from the home of American photographer Phil Lanoue.

According to Mr Lanoue the birds showed no fear as they cornered the alligator and began to tug at its tail.

The birds appeared to be intrigued by the stranger in the waters and followed the alligator around the marsh pond in South Carolina.

Mr Lanoue, 58, was watching the sunset when the incredible scene unfolded.

He said: ‘The spoonbills became completely fascinated with the alligator and in particular its tail.

‘They were absolutely obsessed. They seemed to be reacting to the alligator in the same way a cat would to a dangled piece of string.

‘Once they found the tail they were curious and they just wouldn’t leave it alone.

‘The alligator attempted to go about it’s business which was getting itself fed but it was clearly annoyed at the unwanted attention.’
