Hare and hedgehog

A story from the Grimm brothers (original Low German, English translation), wherein is told the tale of a hare that ridicules the stumpy legs of a hedgehog. The offended hedgehog challenges the hare to a race to take place in a field. As the hare reaches the finishing line at the end of the field, he sees the hedgehog's wife who appears identical to her husband. Imagining he has been beaten, the hare challenges the hedgehog to another race. This is repeated 73 times. On the 74th race, the hare collapses and dies on the spot.

  4. This one won't run away even if it sees you.

  5. I was thinking of the Trojan Rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail. It's a very funny movie.

  6. And I always thought the story was about a tortoise and a hare.

  7. Love the cute little rabbit and I like the way you've placed the photo at a tilt - how did you manage that? It gives the picture something special.
