|Bunnies on the Switchback Trail|
Did you know that rabbits have the ability to see nearly 360 degrees? That special gift allows them to see predators coming from almost any angle…oddly enough, except for a blind spot in front of their noses and below their chins (according to the Wisconsin House Rabbit Society).
I found these three bunnies on one of my latest walks at the watershed. Two of the three took off as I approached, but the one on the far left side of the picture didn’t. I walked by, giving him space, and continued on my path. He stayed there even after I passed.
What would you do with a 360-degree view? If you could see everything around you, would you feel safer? Would you fear less? I wonder.
Since I don’t have the gift of panoramic vision, I’m not going to dwell on that. Rather, I think I’ll just look at the gifts I do have…the gift of a smile, of kindness, of a pure heart, to name a few. Like the rabbits, I’ll try to use my gifts to make my life and the life of those around me better.
What gifts do you have that you can share?
