Just... cuteness

Sorry, can't help myself. I have to share the cute.

Our back yard has become a haven for wildlife. Over the past couple of months we've seen ducklings, baby robins, and now bunnies. We've also caught sight of coyotes and hawks as well, but -- so far, at least -- all the little ones have been spared.

Today, then, I'm sharing a few shots of the cuties who have been born in our back yard. Hope you enjoy the pics!

We loved watching the robins come feeding their young. This nest was built right outside my kitchen window, so I was able to keep a close eye on the parents' comings and goings and of the chicks growth and progress.

I think those little ones were always hungry.
Hmmm.... a lot like *my* little chickies!

The momma bunny had six little offspring and we've watched her coddle and nurse them, right in the middle of our yard, as though she knew she was safe. That we wouldn't bother her or them.

This little guy in the picture to the right was the bravest of her kids. He/she stared right at us and moved around as though daring us to make a move.

His brother/sister in the photo above (far right) kept his/her ears back and never even twitched, as though silently hoping we wouldn't notice.

They've been frolicking in our yard for the past week or so. I've learned my lesson the hard way, and I've put all my delicious herbs and tasty-to-rabbit plants out of their reach. They seem to be fattening plenty well on grass, so I don't feel guilty.

Do you have any critters living in your back yard?
