Scenes from the commute -- something scary, something cute

I see more copperheads than any other snake when I'm out on the bike -- probably 8~10 so far this summer. I nearly ran over this juvenile copperhead (note the green tipped tail) tonight on the way home.
When I turned around to take his picture, this little fellow was in the strike position and clearly agitated. Given his agitated state, I didn't feel like getting 6 inches a way from a venomous snake for a close-up shot -- hope you readers don't mind.

And for something cute. I saw this little cotton tail bunny munching on wildflowers near Lake Crabtree. He didn't seem to mind me taking his picture one bit!
