rabbit bush


They did it!! Kai and Malia finally worked as a team today and it was amazing! What a fun flight! Kai was chasing the rabbit around a bush when Malia came in from the side and cut it off. With a goshawk at its back and a dog at its front, the rabbit decided to leap straight up in the air, where Kai collided with it and brought it to the ground! Malia was great and knew well enough to give Kai space once he had it so everything went smoothly from there.

I’m on cloud 9! Nine months of fieldwork with the pup and a rough first week trying to get Kai to cooperate with her, but I think it’s finally paying off!

Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time
A cottontail I found near the Bloody Dick Creek Road.  It had climbed up the rose bush to eat the tips of the branches.

US. A rabbit sits under bush during the Blue Cut wildfire in Phelan, California on August 17, 2016. A fire raging east of Los Angeles spread rapidly Wednesday, posing a threat to more than 82,000 people and prompting the governor of California to declare a state of emergency. More than 1,300 firefighters were battling the giant blaze with more on the way, but as of early Wednesday they had been unable to contain the inferno.

When nothing is for sure we remain
alert, perennially on our toes. It is more
exciting not to know which bush the rabbit
is hiding behind than to behave as though we knew everything.

Early mornings were normal for Kaaras. He didn’t expect anyone else to be up, but he’d been doing this for so many years that sleeping in became difficult and often hurt his head. He went to bed at a reasonable time, unless there was a reason he was staying up. But training and meditation were essential for him to be a good mage and a good fighter. A mage without control was a dangerous mage, not just to others, but to themselves as well.

He probably wouldn’t have noticed Herah at all, until he saw a rabbit in the bush as it scurried out of the way of hos boots, and his eyes followed it. That was when he saw the woman, half nude and only covered by a towel.

“Oh… Maker, I’m sorry. I didn’t realise anyone else was up.” His eyes dropped instantly to give her privacy. “I’ll just… be going now.” A hot blush spread across his cheeks and his ears dropped flat. She looked nice with her hair down like that, all wet and dripping and

Maker, stop it, stop it, stop it!

She wet her lips slowly before shifting, adjusting the towel a little closer around herself. Madrigal’s tits, he was blushing again. She considered him with his ears flat and gave a very quiet little smile before drawing a soft breath. 

“Are you always up early in the mornings?” She turned back pulling her hair over her shoulder, still combing her fingers through it to brush away the worst of the water. “I didn’t realize this was your spot.” She wrung some of the water from the ends of her hair before shifting a little closer to her clothes, studying him in the morning light.
