I thought I would share some rabbit pictures with you since this is Easter week I thought bunnies might be popular. There is quite a thriving population of rabbits in a nearby park. The original rabbits either escaped captivity or were "dropped off'" at the park by their former owners.
"The precise origin of the ancient custom of decorating eggs is not known, although evidently the blooming of many flowers in spring coincides with the use of the fertility symbol of eggs—and eggs boiled with some flowers change their color, bringing the spring into the homes." (Wikipedia)
"Many Christians of the Eastern Orthodox Church to this day typically dye their Easter eggs red, the color of blood, in recognition of the blood of the sacrificed Christ (and, of the renewal of life in springtime). Some also use the color green, in honor of the new foliage emerging after the long dead time of winter." (Wikipedia)
"The Ukrainian art of decorating eggs for Easter, known as pysanky, dates to ancient, pre-Christian times. Similar variants of this form of artwork is seen amongst other eastern European cultures." (Wikipedia)
"German Protestants wanted to retain the Catholic custom of eating colored eggs for Easter, but did not want to introduce their children to the Catholic rite of fasting. Eggs were forbidden to Catholics during the fast of Lent, which was the reason for the abundance of eggs at Easter time." (Wikipedia)
I liked this action shot of a rabbit hopping off with a piece of celery.
