Rabbits

I went out to Lake Kegonsa to look for deer last weekend.  With the grass very high now and all the cover from the trees and bushes I didn’t expect to have much luck.

All I managed to get were some nice photos of some rabbits, who seemed perfectly content to let me get very close.

Wanting to get a nice low angle shot I sat down in the grass, so as to be eye to eye with them.  Of course this is Wisconsin at the height of Summer with all the little parasites known to man mosquitoes, flies, ticks, etc. in abundance.  I had never known chiggers existed until two years ago when I got them for the first time.  Never had them, mostly because I never stayed in the tall grasses long enough for them to be a problem until I started shooting pictures.  Well, anyway, I hope you enjoyed the rabbit pictures.

Sam’s Allergies

20110718_42

It’s nice to see Sam resting like this.  He has suffered from various skin allergies since birth.  The last two or three years have been the worst.  He would startle awake by something causing him to itch and start scratching or licking to make it stop.  His vet said there was nothing that could be done.  The answer to Sam’s stress was really quite simple.  Find a new vet.  Sam has three issues now that he’s getting older.  The skin allergies being one, but now he’s also developing cataracts, and, according to the last vet, is developing cancer.  The new vet says he finds no evidence of Sam having cancer and the developing cataracts may have something to do with his skin infection.  That’s right, skin infection, not allergies.  He gave Sam some antibiotics to treat the skin infection and now he rests comfortably – no more licking or scratching.
