Rather Lame, Right?

When I arrived at the Botanic Garden, these people suddenly began to play a rather lame game of hide and seek with me...of
course i spotted them every time they hid and soon got bored and left to shoot some flowers. sigh. I SEE you. and I see YOU. jeez.

The Story Behind the Photo....

Last week while walking the dog, i found some tire ruts on a lawn nearby with a baby bunny hiding inside it. I was afraid the gardeners servicing this property might mow over it, or a dog sniff it out and gave some flags to Lucy to surround it as a head's up. It worked for days until yesterday when the gardeners came and left, and Donald noticed this tiny makeshift cross, bound in string, no bunny, and grass seed filling in the tire ruts. Kind of a yin/yang discovery. Double click for larger image
