What? More snow!

This jack rabbit looks about as pleased as I was to see the snow this morning. I shouldn't be surprised...we can get snow in any month here in Calgary (yes, even in July and August!)

These wild jack rabbits are actually hares and not rabbits at all. They can be found in most residential neighbourhoods in this city. Year-round residents, they change their duds according to the season. Also known as snowshoe hares, in winter they are a beautiful pure white to match the snow. About three weeks ago their fur began to take on it's brown summer colouration. Looks like they changed their outfits just a little early!

  1. More snow? Bummer. But it's a good photo of the rabbit.
