Caption This: Standoff

Our simple afternoon walk drew to a halt. We eyed our foe and wondered at his bravery. Caption this standoff.

Our standoff with a brave foe.
Our standoff with a brave foe.

Our daily walks follow the greenway that threads along the side of a creek through our neighborhood. We are accustomed to seeing a good bit of wildlife including dozens and dozens of rabbits. When they see us, they scamper far off the trail to avoid any conflict. Except this guy. He rested on the side of the trail, chewed a blade of grass, and stared at us. We were at a standoff. Go ahead, Dear Reader, who said what next? We love your creativity in our weekly Caption This! (P.S. – Left to right – Landon, Frankie, Typhoon, Roscoe.)
