Seriously, dude, the ears are a giveaway.
A scrape in damp soil in the shade of a shrub is desert cottontail air conditioning on a 100 degree afternoon. A nearby brushpile makes a good escape plan, and there’s viral bermuda grass for grazing just a few feet away. This is the rabbit equivalent of the dude with beers in his hat tubing down the Salt River. The only thing missing is the smell of sunscreen, and blaring music. (Photo A.Shock, Canon EOS xti).
