Cottontail Rabbit With A Tick

The Baby Cottontail Rabbit that I have posted about (Baby Cottontail Rabbit) and (Baby Cottontail Rabbit Visiting) has picked up a large tick. I wished it would let me get that tick off. That tick should be dropping off soon, as full as it looks.

Baby Cottontail Rabbit

I was doing yard work when this baby Cottontail Rabbit ran out from under my deck. It got against a pine tree and was difficult to see.

    Cottontail Rabbit Relaxing

    I came across this Cottontail Rabbit relaxing on a dirt road I was walking here in Arkansas. Rabbits like to take dust baths to remove parasites from their fur. I see lots of Mammals taking dust baths, even birds.

    How I Got The Shot – Cottontail Rabbit Relaxing

    Years ago I spent lots of time walking the roads on Fort Chaffee here in Arkansas with my camera. Fort Chaffee is near where I live so it was convenient. I don’t anymore because it became difficult getting onto the base after the 911 bombings. This is a photo I took during one of those walks.

    • Date Taken: June 26, 2008
