Random morning pictures and whose got life?

This morning I walked out of the house to find the baby bunny right next to the plants in the backyard.
My experience is that baby bunnies are a less gun-shy than the older bunny so I was able to get pretty close to the wee Guy. 
Well I took a series just in case... the first furthest away and then finally I was just about 3 feet or less away.
But I guess if I had to go through what a bunny did to survive (cats, dogs, foxes, cars, hawks, poisons, etc) I'd be slightly skittish too. 
And for all that, humans do get skittish. They just do it in their own human ways.

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea. -Antoine de Saint-Exupery.  

Tomorrow is the anniversary of the Saint-Exupery's birth (born 1900). While I am not a great fan, I was looking for content for our "Today in history..." on the schedule I make each day and the quote struck me as noteworthy. After all, it is not my great love of the well structured sentence that keeps me writing (even when I'm not writing a lot) but the love of adventure and imaginings that keep me pressing onward. A well turned phrase is delightful but set amidst dull story telling, the phrase is a shiny bobble on a bland tree. This is not limited to writing obviously so I needn't go on- the analogy with ship-building, while no longer relevant to today is quite metaphor-full so it's better than mine.
Have a great weekend!
