AWESOME!!!! Watership Down reference!!! Most excellent....kinda looks like Fiver! I don't mind rabbit or deer etc....but when a snake appears out of nowhere, I scream. I'll take hawks or anything else anytime:)
Snakes? Euwww...One time I was in the smokey mountains and I pulled over to the little pull over thingy to eat my lunch. Then I stepped off the beaten track onto a black snake that was in "my mind" two inches thick and eight feet long. To this day I could not tell you the actual size of the snake. I did that your mouth opens but nothing comes out thing and then went into a conscious coma. I remember this thing in 3D. So much for my opinion of snakes.
We use to have a female rabbit living in our yard. I so enjoyed watching the babies and their mama each year. Sadly she was hit by a passing car. I miss them.
I see that you're a fan of Watership Down. Do they bother your flowers or gardens?
The deer eat the impatiens. The rabbits eat the petunia's. It's a constant battle.
