Wild hares keep coming to  mind lately. It is very symbolic of fertility and new life - appropriate for this time of year.
In the Chinese zodiac the rabbit is a most fortunate sign, giving those born under it the ability to possess considerable power. In many cultures, it is a lunar creature with feminine energies whose outline can be seen in the face of the moon.  (Which may explain why I've been thinking of the moon along with the hare). More to come !
