The Truth About Bugs Bunny

My granddaughter Hope noticed this bunny venturing out of a wooded area near the bank.





We approached as quietly as a 3 year old can manage. Bunny started out and Hope squealed so bunny turned back. In the last shot bunny gave us a "look"

On the way home Hope mentioned that all the real bunnies she sees are small and close to the grass yet Bugs Bunny is tall and walks around like a person. I was about to explain that in cartoons things can be different when Hope summed it up for me.

"Nana! I don't think Bugs is a bunny. He's a man dressed up like a bunny who got turned into a cartoon!"

Too cute -- I love the bunnies and I love hearing Hope's thought process!

Oh that sweet angel of yours. You must spend half of the day hugging and kissing that sweet little darling.

Her realization reminded me of my Jeffrey at that same age. We were eating chicken for dinner and suddenly he exclaimed "Hey! There are two kinds of chicken in the world. The animal and the kind we eat" I didn't have the heart to tell him at that precise moment but we did very soon afterward.

Hope was able to discern that Bugs shows all the non-bunny traits, including bipedalism! Nice close-ups of the bunny.

Wise words. Wise words. And great job getting some shots without spooking the bunny. That last shot with the wide eyes. Never noticed that before.

Carletta said...

That is a startled look on that bunny!
I think Hope summed up Bugs perfectly!

Love the cute bunnies! Happy Sunday!

Love the eye in the last shot! I think you scared the poor thing out of its wits, not that its difficult to scare a bunny out of its wits as its definitely short on wits. That's what I believe and that's where I will stand! ;)
