Took a little walk around the national park this morning in the quiet hours just before and after dawn. The air was cool and not much stirred other than the birds. I spotted what I thought was one bear (turned out to be two! bad photo below), bringing my total this week to 3 bears - a new record for me. Perhaps my bear curse is broken??
As I walked along I noticed a small brown lump by the trail. It wasn't moving as I approached, so I assumed it was just a clump of leaves. Upon closer inspection, I was surprised to find this tiny baby bunny! I wish there had been something nearby to include in the photo for a sense of scale, but there wasn't. You'll just have to take my word for it when I tell you this bunny was tiny enough I could have fit it in one hand - and I have small hands!
