Hi Rick,
superbe image, pas facile à attrapper. Belle netteté, bravo.


Jolie tenue de camouflage.
Bonne journée.

Hi Rick,
First time I've seen on TN an image of one of these cute little fellas.A lovely capture of it merging with the surrounding snow....not an easy task with all that reflected light.Great detail and clarity down to the fluffy hairs on its back.well done.

Hello Rick,
Wow, that is a fantastic shot - I love the way he is camouflaged here in the snow. Superb details and lovely light. Very well managed white colour. A favourite of mine!
TFS and regards, Ulla

This is wonderful Rick. Looks like perfect exposure on all that white and great focus on the eye and head. It feels maybe a tiny bit closely cropped on the bottom but it is a super shot. I feel like I could reach out and touch that soft rabbit fur.

Evelynn : )

Nice frame filling shot Rick and great texture on the coat even with harsh lighting and snow background.
Nice and sharp, great work.

Belle photo, d' un beau lapin,fallait le voir ,blanc sur blanc et ne pas le faire fuire aussi. Amicalement Thomas

Nicely done Rick. Great detail and clarity in the eyes and fur.

When they hide they usually lay extremely flat on the ground. Seems to me that that one was indeed hiding, but was not doing his best for it. He probably knew he can run much faster than you and didn't take the danger very seriously.
WOW! You took the pic a little from above. I guess you were really close.
Beautiful colors light and contrast.

nice pic, TFS Ori

Hi Rick,
Great capture with super composition and details,

Great shot. Just a dad overexposed on the right side. Guess it is hard with the shade and the background.

Hello Rick

Awesome shot.Amazing POV,and excellent DOF.The focus is spot on.Not many of these guys posted on TN.Very good exposure and excellent eye contact.TFS


Hi Rick
Nice closeup of your Hare. Excellent detail and lighting. I see he has his eye on you ;)

I think the Hare is lucky to have some snow here to hide amongst. There's nothing more sad than to see a White Hare trying to hide in the brown grass.

Hi Rick,
Fine capture with good sharpness and presentation.
Didn't know that Jack Rabbits had white winter coats. Of the three rabbit/hare species in Europe only the mountain hare turns white in the winter.
TFS and beast wishes, Ivan

Outstanding! Period. Jay

Hello Rick,

Hi Rick,
wow I'm amazed you saw this one, he is so well camouflaged. Very nicel composition, you handled the light situation very well. Excellent details and nice exposure on the whites. POV, sharpness and crop are very nice.

Bonsoir Rick
Elle est vraiment magnifique cette photo !
bon cadrage , belle netteté et très bonne exposition !Techniquement c'est difficile dans la neige, c'est particulièrement bien équilibré, avec de très beaux tons de blanc et gris, un sujet bien net avecde magnifiques couleurs.
Bravo et au revoir...JP
Les sourires demain

Hi Rick,
excellent capture of the hare,I like how you were able to show it in contrast without the snow hiding the details.f/11 works well and that is one of the reasons I like TN so much,the exif information,if only I can remember it however. Bob
