7 p.m.: We just noticed a new baby cottontail eating grass in the back yard. He is so tiny that when he has his head down eating, all you can see is the tips of his ears above the grass. I waited until he looked up to snap this shot. You can also see here that our catnip is flowering, and will soon be going to seed.


It’s now 8:10pm, almost dark, and here is the little guy on the patio right up by the back door. There was not quite enough light to get a good photo without moving the camera and blurring the image.
