Backyard Summertime Nature in New Jersey.

Harvey, from five years ago. There used to be a lot of rabbits in and around my garden. This year I have only seen one.

Backyard Summertime Nature in New Jersey.

Harvey Jr. trying to hide in the tall grass. This is the first rabbit I have seen this year. Normally, I will have photographed many by now. This one is pretty young, and doesn’t appear to have ticks in its ear. Also, the ears have not been chewed on, so no fighting between rabbits yet.
