Bunny or Hare?

The rabbit(s) have been around the garden most of the winter, mostly making use of the brush piles etc we provide for them to shelter in. So far they have not nibbled on the bark of our younger trees and shrubs so as far as we know we have not lost anything yet. These Eastern Cottontail Rabbits don’t burrow but make scrapes in the ground to rest in – rather like the European hares do. This pose very much reminds of the famous painting of a hare by Dürer.
