Wild Rabbits

Wild rabbits abound in the woods and fields nearby and it is always exciting to flush one or two. I imagine how hard their hearts flutter from the fear. It is not unusual to stumble upon a pair of rabbits that huddle close together, holding absolutely still, trusting the tall grass to hide them.

And then, they bolt and are gone in a flash!
