Moon creature…?

With Easter coming up in a couple of weeks, I rummaged through old photos and found this rabbit.  The rabbit was pleased to pose for me at Cedar Ridge Preserve, south of Dallas, Texas.  

A question comes to mind:  how did rabbits become associated with Easter?   The truth is rather obscure, but the Internet consensus seems to be that rabbits were associated with the moon, because rabbits feed only at night.  The moon, in turn, was associated with new life.  OK, I knew about the moon and new life, but the part about rabbits feeding only at night is news to me.  This rabbit and a companion rabbit (not shown) seemed perfectly happy to browse through the grass in broad daylight.  In any case, this rabbit is cute and fluffy, and isn’t that why we like animal photos?
