I snapped these two pictures to show my wife Caryl, who has serious arthritis and walks with a cane, so she doesn't get out much in winter when the snow is deep and the ice is slick. I often bring her nature pix so she can see what is happening out there in our woods. I wasn't particularly expecting anything artistic when I took these shot of bunny poop, I just wanted to record the spoor -- but the light was just right to create a rather interesting -- if campy! -- effect.
You can see how the rabbits stripped the bark off -- not only on this fallen tree, but in a lot of other places, too. I've also noticed quite a lot of bunny poop in the compost pile, where I dump the cleanings from the chicken coop. The bunnies are apparently picking through the old hay and straw. It's been a hard winter for them and other animals, with the snow so deep that food is hard to find. Rats and mice also visit the compost pile -- you can see the little trails of footprints where they come out of their tunnels under the snow. And sometimes you see also the prints of feather tips, where an owl swooped down to grab its dinner. I often hear an owl hooting around here, although I've never actually see it.
