It is a favorite past time of mine to go to the country or forest for my weekly hikes. We are always on the lookout for little animals and birds that might wander into the woods where we hike and I will often snap a photo as I go. I often find myself staring at the animals in their shells or their different shapes and sizes and wonder what they are seeing as they stand motionless in the stillness of the woods.
This is a common occurrence for me. Not so long ago my husband and I were wandering around a forested area of a state park we had just visited. To our surprise, we came across a young rabbit who was staring at us from under some leaves. We looked closely and saw that he was looking at us. We talked about this for a while and then decided to take a picture of him. I’m pretty sure the rabbit was laughing at us.
When we first noticed that the rabbit wasn’t looking at us, we thought maybe he was just being very shy. Actually, the rabbit was looking at us because we were staring at him. It was an interesting experience. We also encountered a large raccoon who was looking at us as well, but the raccoon was looking at the camera, not at us.
