Hello Niek !
He is soooo cute ! Just want to stretch out my hand and to touch his sot fur ! :-) He really looks a bit unhappy... But the picture is fantastic, with great details, nice natural colors, wonderful composition and POV. The rabbit stands out very nicely on the green BG. Very well done !

so i'm guessing this ones slightly annoyed then?! Great colour in the grass and the Rabbit itself, also great catchlight in the eye too. Nice details also.
There seems to be a faint dark outline around the left hand side of the head area, but this could just be the fur sticking up? A great shot though, i like your low POV. Good note, very interesting!
tfs and have a good weekend

Hi Niek, nice capture and note to explain the circumstances, the short DOF and lovely exposure make a wondeful effect here. I was surprised with the information about "the language o rabbits" :)
Thanks and best regards, Felipe.

So they too talk with the ears, like some dogs do!
Interesting to see the phenomenon documented so well...
Excellent details in the little face, you can actually see from the eyes too the animal is not entirely happy!

Hi Niek, good composition and just the right amount of depth to make the subject stand out. Detail is good and the eye looks alive. Best, Brat.
400mm lens????????? When did you get that? I had a Canon 400mm for about an hour and returned it. I didn't like it much. I so much prefer stabilized lenses so went with the 100-400. It is noticeably better than my Sigma 80-400 on the long end.
It gives me comfort to know that you were being watched over by such amenable companions. I think being kept awake by one of these guardians is sweet....better than being kept awake by a bear with only a mm of fabric between you... That happened to me. Have I mentioned that I love my camper?
Super focus right on the eye. That lens sure does have a shallow depth of focus. I've discovered that one has to be really precise. Nice natural color.

Beautiful capture - and the shallow DOF is not hurting the image at all! Great focus where it needs to be! Well done! Cheers, Klaus

Wonderful shot of this very angry looking rabbit Niek.
Excellent composition and lighting.
Details, the green of the grassess surrounding the rabbit and the frame are wonderful.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a nice weekend,

So now you have become an expert on "Rabbit speak", but it seems like you still need some experience in sexual orientation as far as it concerns these fluff-balls (chuckle). Great stuff as this just once again gives evidence of how we benefit from TREKNature. Not only did you learn some very interesting and useful facts about rabbit behaviour, but because you shared it with us there might be a lot of people who benefit from your learnings or research.
Of course with such cuddly and fluffy little characters there is always the cuteness factor that can derail ones objectivity and bring out the oohs and ahs, but there is certainly no fear of that with this excellent capture as whatever oohs and ahs might be forthcoming is based on pure merit. A lovely composition and I just love the beautiful evergreen haven this little critter is surrounded by. The colours are perfectly natural and the details are magnificent, even with a wonderful little catch-light in the eye that seems to reflect how close you really were to the wee little rabbit. Due to its size and even at 400mm focal length you probably were not much farther than a couple of meters from the animal.
Good work and TFS.

This is so interesting. I have missed this one (like many other pictures from you :) This rabbit speaks indeed. How disturbed he seems! This is such a cute creature, always fun to see. I love this expression caught, excellent details and catch light. This is a lovely and interesting post. Thanks!
