Hi Friends!
I know I've been scarce here lately and I've missed being here just seems as though life gets in the way lately. I really haven't had alot of time to even get my camera out and ohhh I've missed it! But I happened to look out my back window yesterday and who did I see hopping in my backyard but Mr E. Bunny! Little did he know what happened to the last Bunny who dared to hop though my back yard..........( I have a German Shepard Dog...) So I quickly shut the doors so that he could have a chance to find a way out as my entire 1/2 acre of yard is fenced in, I guess he found a hole somewhere!
I took the photo through a dirty window :o( But I knew that if I went to open the window or get to the door I'd frightened the little guy away. I did try after I took a few shots and yes indeed he hopped, well raced to the nearest spot where he could squiggle through the fence.

Thanks for visiting!

Hi Donna.
What a cute creature you have pictured. It is looked greatly and its pose and glance are charming. Colour palette and lights are strange a little bit but they have some charm and picture is looked very well. My kind regards and all the best (to you and your little photo model).

Hello Donna,
I loved the whole colouration in this shot a lot!
a very fine image of this cute fellow with a good pose of him!
many thanks for sharing
and wishing you well on your new house!

Hi Donna

I know what you mean about life getting in the way. I have only recently returned as well...

What gets me with this rabbit, is that he looks like he is crossed with your German Shephard what with his shaggy fur. The one sin the UK have much shorter fur and are well into breeding now... but it does mean that I won't have to consider cutting the lawn yet, but it also means that the cars have to go away at night inside the rabbit proof pen... bunnies knaw at things and do the most awful damage to the underside of cars (3 years ago our was written off becuase of the damage they had caused over the years - the insurance did not cover the damage caused by wild rabbits... never found out if tame rabbits woudl have been covered on the insurance, but we were not overly impressed as you can guess!

anyhow - great shot through the window. Our new double glazing means I can not take piccies through the glass anymore... which is a real shame becuase I rarely see our greenwood peckers when the windows are open...


Hello Donna,
This is a funny fellow, probably a bit confused to see a photographer where his mind is expecting carrots!
And he's obviously behind, still in the winter fur I think...
A nice portrait indeed!

Hi Donna,
Excellent shot and you have had it a bit startled but the eye contact looks fabulous. The green overtone comes from your window glass I suppose and it makes the image a bit different. Very neat and sharp shot from a fine POV. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

Hi Donna,
cute shot, looks like he really can't belief the fact that Easter is over ... looks stunned somehow hahaha.
Lovely shot, ver well timed to catch this wonderful pose.

Hallo Donna
What a wonderful shot. This is really a fine-looking image with lots of detail to appreciate. The cute ears, up in the air all alert, the white nose and the big black eyes are just great. The fur on the body reminds me of the fur off a waterbuck. A beautiful viewpoint, with lovely details and focus. The green grass highlights the beauty of this furry little friend. Thanks for sharing.
Best regards

Hi Donna,
jajaja what a nice bunny!!!! lovely and cute. Good details, but maybe a bit more of light would be better, so we can see more details over the fur.
Anyway, great shot over this fast guy!
have a nice day

Hi Donna,

The bunny on your lawn is impressive. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the animal. The subject is well framed. There is a good contrast between the colors. Have a nice day.
