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!
Calgary is a great city...lively and vibrant with friendly people! We have perfect weather, with clearly defined seasons. Winter is winter and it's cold and snowy but there's always ski-ing! Summers are hot but with a delightful cool breeze off the Rocky Mountains. And almost every day the sky is big and blue.
