Well, pests can be cute.

Agree. Baby mice are also cute, as are baby skunks.

Life in the country.

At least the bunnies are quiet, even if they are voracious plant killers. Still, we think they're an improvement over the rafter of turkeys that wandered through our yard for a number of years, uphill in the morning and downhill at night. Then, about 9-10 years ago, they stopped. Top count was 23 birds. Those gobblers can get loud! Recently, a small trio has been wandering through the yard, waking everyone up with backyard-facing bedroom windows.

Darn Bunnies ruin everything, bet they would all love to go to CG's house.

Too bad they are very good for eating. Only tame ones are eating tender. Wild ones are gamey and tough.

I wouldn't know. I have only eaten wild snowshoe hare. They weren't gamey or tough, but they didn't taste like chicken. The most noticeable thing about them was the lack of fat.

I couldn't hurt, much less eat these bunnies, but I wish something else, like the coyotes, foxes or eagles would help out!

I'm not going to eat bunnies! I'd be jumping around like Beagle, trying to get a look at them!

With our bunnies, you can get within two feet of them, and they turn their backs on you and ignore you. Bold little monsters.

This swallowtail butterfly just emerged from its cocoon - in our kitchen! It was on a bunch of parsley from my garden that I had put in a glass of water. I saw the caterpillar and a few days later, there was a cocoon. And today - a beautiful butterfly!
