"...but please, Br'er Fox, don't fling me in dat briar-patch!"

I was out back yesterday with The Huntress when I realized she was quite interested in a patch of briars near the fence. She's sniffed around in here before, or near here as it is all thorns and vines, but she was truly on the scent of something today. She did her little 'pointer' thing when not just playing snuffing-beagle, and I finally saw what she didn't: a baby bunny among the foliage. Wish I had the camera with me, but alas. I coaxed her away and she reluctantly moved on to another thicket where the rabbits have been known to hide.




The bunny baby was right in here, and I didn't have a camera with me. It was really too dusky for a good shot anyway. Mother Rabbit chose her nursery well.


Another shot of the thicket.


Trust me, these hurt! That hawk that got injured in the yard that time also took refuge beneath these tangled plants.


Another favorite place for creatures to hide out in the yard!


I knew there had been wee ones among the ground cover because it has been harder and harder to get the dog to come away from these hidey places. I even saw the poison ivy and low strawberry plants moving in line as one critter ran off from the pup (she missed that, too). I just hope these fellows get the hell out of the yard or at least into secure places before they become play toys!
