At least for Sonya! Despite her “fast as a bullet” speed, the jackrabbits outdistancedher in no time. Their long ears shot skyward as they sprang through desert brush into the mesquite groves. I scarcely manage to get a photo of Sonya, so I didn’t even bother trying to get a photo of a jackrabbit.
This field is near our RV park in Pahrump and a great place for Sonya to romp when David is with her. He can get her back by her side with some insistent shouts or whistles. With the occasional presence of coyotes, though, I wouldn’t take her there on my own because I don’t have her under voice command. (I know, you’d think in 11 years I would have learned that skill.)
But I do love it when they invite me along. Sonya expresses sheer joy when she does what she was born to do. Her joy is contagious and stays with me for hours. Love it!
