All things wild
A young rabbit, a new occupant, I believe, has been seeking safety near my wood pile. First I saw him laying low and resting, thinking he would not be seen at all.
Then, he must have thought it best to get near the woodpile, just in case I got a little to close for his/her comfort. Anyway, this young one posed nicely for this photo shoot. I find it amazing that his coloring is so wonderfully camouflaged to blend in with the wood, dirt, and grass.
A wild-fire broke out in Sinks Canyon yesterday, and sent up a large, smokey plume in the afternoon. By evening (when this was shot) flames could be seen from my house. Hopefully, its wild nature will be contained and tamed very soon.
