Wednesday in Wyoming -- April 6, 2016

This may look like an ordinary white crocus to you, but in my yard it's an almost-endangered species.  For some reason, cottontail rabbits (at least the ones who live here) have a strong preference for snacking on white crocuses.  They won't touch the yellow or purple ones, but the white ones disappear almost as soon as they open.

Anyone know why?  Do you think it's the color that attracts them, or is it possible that they smell and/or taste different?
