Working with rabbits produces a number of surprises, from intakes that are “definitely a girl”, to suddenly falling in or out of love for no apparent reason, to that moment when you turn around and the rabbit watching you from the next aviary is not the round black one you were expecting.
It's not often I see one of the rescue's real wildies. While the hand-reared trio are often out and about, the girls who are bonded to domestic rabbits have a tendency to disappear at the drop of a hat and hide all day. To turn around and have Odyssey not only in the open but actually allowing me to take photos of her (albeit at a distance) was a pleasing moment and I hope it wasn't a one off!
