But sometimes, on very rare occasions, a special someone comes along whose company can actually enhance the dining experience. Who knew snowshoe hares had more than just an interest in large families to bring to the conversation, or a palate for fine seeds?
Snow continues to cover so much of the ground this spring that animals seem more open to eating outside their usual fare and tolerating the presence of other species. These two have become regular dining partners near the back deck. I wonder if they’ll continue their ‘friendship’ once the snow cover is gone and dandelions are ripe for the eating.
