For once we have had a dry Sunday with warm sunshine. So i went to the local nature reserve to see what i could find. Just the usual birds and Butterflies alomg with this Rabbit which was in the area of the woodland hide. As i have not taken one before i thought i would post it.

HI neighbour,
congratulations for such a sharp detailed image, with natural colours and fine composition.

Hi Nicholas,

Good composition, natural colour and as well detailed as your fantastic bird images. The eye is shown well as a focus point for the viewer.

Hello Nick,
Indeed, something different. Excellent clarity in this photo. Great sharpness and details. Very good low POV and composition. It looks a bit afraid in the eye-contact.

Hello Nicholas
Very cute and with great details and clear image.

A lovely shot, NIck!
We have plenty of rabbits here, hares more often, and rarely do we get a shot of them!

...and it´s not even easter yet.*g* excellent "close-up" of the cute rabbit hiding inbetween the nice green vegetation! :-)
sharpness and details are really great, would not expect less from the 70-200mm-lens, love the big brown eye.
well seen & captured, thor.

Hello Nicholas!
VEry nice capture of rabbit, I especially like sharpness and natural light. Picture has good composition too.
Greetings from Lodz,

Hi Nick,
Looks like he's a bit scared and trying to hide from you. The photo is a beauty with great details, excellent clarity and natural colors. I am pleasantly amazed about the DOF you got with the aperture. You must have been far away.

Hi Nick,

This is a great shot of this Rabbit with beautiful colors, sharpness & pose. Well done & TFS.



Your shot is so real I feel as though I could touch it...Both Nikon and Canon do well...My Leica has a special catagory...but I would not be able to get close in as you did here...Very sharp..Good Sunday Sir!

Unusual subject for you! Excellent composition with fine details on the head. The colours and DOF are perfect too. It is interesting to see the rabbit in a wild meadow, with many different plants around it. Cheers,

Hi Nick,

I love your Rabbit who must be having a feast surrounded by all the greens. His colors and coat are wonderful but I absolutely LOVE the eye. Our cottontails aren't so lucky - they have to search for leaves and plants. Did I say beautiful shot?


Hi and Good Morning Nick,
A marvelous capture of this lovely rabbit in a fine pose from good POV with excellent clarity, details and fine composition.
TFS and cheers,

I am sure that it would be difficult to capture a rabbit's picture, Nicholas. Is not it? They are very alert and shy away from humans. You managed to get an excellent shot with very good sharpness - the details near the eyes are impressive.
See, even this one is looking like ready to run away...

Hi Nick!

Very good shot taken by surprise. Rabbit looks like ready to long jump and fast escape. I like its vigilant pose and big, shinning eye. Also, composition with lots of fresh plants around animal looks very nice.
