Crow Vs. Bunny

Yesterday evening, Lesa and I were just finishing our dinner when she looked out the window and noticed a little bunny in the yard across the street. It was my first bunny of the season. This spring has already brought cardinals, hummingbirds, a groundhog, cats, raccoons, skunks, chipmunks, squirrels, and a bear, but no bunnies.

As we sat there watching the little guy bounce around eating grass, a crow suddenly swooped down and started trying to attack the bunny! The rabbit hopped away a little and then the crow followed, again trying to attack. I was surprised to notice that the crow was actually larger than the rabbit.

The bunny hopped under an overgrown hedge and the crow stood there looking in. Eventually, the crow tried to go around the bush and flush the bunny out but when it got to the back it noticed an innocent bystander squirrel and started chasing it a little bit. While that was going on, the bunny slipped back out of the bush and hopped away a little to a fresh patch of grass.

What is the moral of this story?

The act of observing changes the reality of the observer. What did you guys have for dessert?
