Lucky rabbit

Today while I was mowing my lawn, I hit something and felt the engine stall for a split second. Immediately I saw a baby rabbit dart out from underneath the mower, slowing and settling on the other side of the yard. I cut the engine and moved the mower to look under it, and there was a hole some rabbits had apparently dug for shelter. Imagine a giant piece of machinery with a freshly sharpened blade mowing over your home.

No animals were harmed in the mowing of my lawn, though. I followed the baby rabbit across the yard, and the little champ survived that incident without a scratch. He seemed pretty scared, but he let me snap a couple of photos before making his way back to the burrow.
