Over the past week, the eight little kits have decided to go exploring. At first, when they would follow Mama Ophelia out of the nest (possibly still attached and nursing), they couldn't figure out how to climb back in and would be a huddle, chilly and sleepy, when I'd come out in the morning. But now, they've learned how legs work and can clamber back inside when they want to...although they don't want to very much.
In fact, they enjoy hanging out in the unlikeliest of places...
Thankfully, this bowl had been drunk dry at the time of this photo. Bunnies are not known to be the happiest of swimmers, in water bowls or otherwise.
Poor Ophelia, she just can't escape her maternal duties.
