Hello friends, i wish
you all a Happy Easter

from Canadian Biodiversity website

« Unlike its kin, the eastern cottontail
does not become white in the winter time.
Instead it remains brown and hides in
thickets where it is concealed from predators.

This is a nocturnal creature which leads
a solitary lifestyle. It is estimated each
eastern cottontail requires up to three
hectares of its own. The cottontail finds
shelter in the meadows, orchards and shrubby
areas, and does not like forested regions.

In summer and early fall, the eastern
cottontail will feed on plant material
such as fruits and leaves. Once frost
appears the cottontails shift to feeding
on bark, twigs, and buds of shrubs and
young trees. The cottontail has been
recorded in both southern Quebec and
Ontario as well as parts of Manitoba
and British Columbia. Theses animals
serve a vital function in the environment,
as they convert plant material into meat
which is later passed on to predators. »

Hi Asbed,
Excellent capture!
Very good focus, sharpness, colors and details.
Happy Easter,

Happy Easter Asbed. It's nice to see this grass in the picture. We had 4 inches of snow yesterday here in Sudbury, Ontario. It's almost gone now but I was wondering where spring went. Luckily this rabbit seems proud to have some grass of his own. You managed some nice rich colours in this picture and framed it well. A great Easter shot! TFS Happy Easter!


Un puro primer plano... nada habitual en tus trabajos.
Supongo que sabes que los conejos en Europa, o al menos en España, nos los comemos :-)
cosa que no ocurre en Estados Unidos que yo sepa hehehe.
Buen acercamiento.

Hello Asbed,
such a lovely and cute rabbit. Well shown in so close up! There is strong effect of the leaning grass that makes this presentation catchy and exciting.
Well composed view.

Bonjour Asbed,
Tu as trouvé le sujet idéal pour les fêtes de Pâques..adorable créature, blottie dans l'herbe et l'oeil attentif! Très jolis aussi les trèfles juste devant ton lièvre.
Bonne Fêtes à toi aussi

Bonjour Asbed,

Le lapin est bien placé dans le cadrage. la prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du lapin qui observe les environs. La qualité de la lumière rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.

Hello Asbed,
A very fine shot from your archives of the 'Easter bunny'.
Excellent POV taken with fine sharpness and colours in its grassy habitat that makes a great BG.
Enjoy your Easter!

Hallo Asbed
A great subject you chose here to celebrate Easter. This little Eastern Cottontail is a cute pie and displays beautifully against the green grass. I very much like the different colours in its fur, the big oval shaped eyes and the rigit ears. Great point of view and composition. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hallo Asbed,
another very beautiful portrait of the Eastern Cottontail taken from an excellent low point of view, splendid natural colours, a very good visual impact
Happy Easter to you and your family too

Hello Asbed.
