Black Tail Jackrabbit - II

As I mentioned yesterday, Black Tail Jackrabbits visit us late in the Spring to eat mesquite pods that have fallen to the ground from our mesquite trees. They do the same in Saguaro National Park. However, once those mesquite pods have been eaten the jackrabbits will stand on their hind legs, reach up, and eat those pods still on the lower branches of the mesquites. Early one morning as Christine and I were hiking in SNP we can across four Black Tail Jackrabbits doing just that. Here's one of those photos that I rated "5" Star:
