Parsley in Protective Custody

My parsley plant started disappearing again.

Last time this happened, I found a little striped Black Swallowtail caterpillar munching on it.

After a few days it crawled up on the Passion vine, changed shape,

formed a chrysalis, and disappeared.

This time though, I could not find the culprit.

Each day the plant got smaller and smaller.

Ah Ha!  I finally caught the bandit in action.

No Black Swallowtail this go-round.

It was a black New Zealand Lop rabbit, Charlotte.

The plant has been moved out of reach of Miss Munchie.

She was out there searching for her snack this morning.

Whew! These rabbits keep me hopping.
