Rabbit and Fox

 
 
When my sister and brother-in-law rented a cottage at Darnley, Prince Edward Island earlier this month, they had visitors.  They shared these photos of the wildlife near their cottage.  The fox and the rabbit were not around at the same time.  Perhaps, a good thing.

 
 
 
The fox was on the deck and they took the photo through the window, hence the black bar from the window down through the photo.  Maybe the fox was used to finding food leftovers from other renters; he/she wasn't shy around people.

Carol, PEI was the place where we saw the tamest fox ever a few years ago.. they must hang around where people are, a lot of the time.. a handsome little opportunist.

I went for a walk in a nearby nature center on Saturday, and a rabbit greeted me as I drove in. He hopped right over to the car, so close I had to put my head out the window to look at him. I suppose because I stayed in the car he wasn't bothered, but munched along until I was the one who got bored and drove on into the park!

Rabbits and foxes seem to know when it is safe to come closer to humans and when there is danger. Isn't it wonderful to be able to get near enough to enjoy them? I suppose it is dangerous for them if they become too tame.
