Baby bunnies!

I was using the grill on the front deck when I noticed my TV antenna on the back of the house was badly askew.  Rather than walk all the way around the building, I cut through the house and opened the back door...

And three little rabbits just froze.  So did I.  I spoke to them gently, apologizing for the interruption.  I started to close the door, but they took off running.  I figured I might as well fix the antenna, so I went out and aimed it in the correct direction, then I noticed the bunny nest up against the side of the house, just underneath my bedroom window.  And there was something small inside, moving around.  Baby bunnies!

I went inside and grabbed my camera, but by then the babies had settled down into the nest and weren't visible, but you could still see the fur lining moving.

I put a handful of sweet feed on the steps out back so the bunny momma has a little treat.

I've only seen one form hereabouts. I think my little visitor has her babies nearby, though.

Aww, bunny nest! What a way to enter the world. ^_^ Never got to see the nests themselves last year, given they were probably safely by, or even within, the hedgerows and brambles, though I did catch a few moments of one mother plucking fur from herself, and another carrying a surprisingly large bundle of straw in her mouth.
