Cottontail in Spring, Michelle Kogan © 2020, watercolor and watercolor pencil.


Taking a brake from my bird focus to bring you this lovely cottontail I saw on my walk this morning, still had part of his/her winter coat on too…


Oh bunny
hiding between
Spring greens,
you’re no bird,
but oh so perfect
in oh so many ways.
Thanks for your

    Beautiful illustration and poem! A cottontail is always a nice distraction. So nice that saw one.

    What a lovely distraction this is, Michelle, and it comes just in time for Easter. I hope you are doing well in Chicago. Stay safe.

    Hi, Michelle. What a sweet bunny poem. They are a good distraction and so much fun to watch. (The way your bunny is hiding reminds me of Peter Rabbit!)
