Hello friends, a souvenir from
my summer 2008 archives.

1/125s f/4.2 ISO100
16.8mm (35mm eq:95mm)

from New Hampshire Public Television website

« The eastern cottontail has speckled
brown-gray fur above, reddish-brown fur
around its neck and shoulders and lighter
fur around its nose and on its undersides.

It has big eyes and a tail that is puffy
white on the underside. In the winter its
fur may be more gray than brown.

The eastern cottontail prefers habitats
that are between woody areas and open land.
It can be found in bushy areas, fields,
woodlands, swamps and thickets. »

A Very good composition with the rabbit clearly standing out from it's natural BG. Excellent sharp detail and low POV my friend. Well done.

Thanks for the positive feedback on my Bee-eater. I studied you photos and also tried to increase the speed by increasing the ISO setting to a 1000 in the right conditions.

Hello Asbed,
Excellent sharp detailed photo of this rabbit in beautiful contrasting colours, nicely contrasting against the background. Taken from a very good low POV.

Hi Asbed. Very nicely framed with great foliage. I love the light in this and it carries the colours well. It's a perfect side profile. TFS Trevor

Hello Asbed,
A real beauty from your archive collection. I really like the low POV and vivid yet natural colors. When you look at the tall dense grasses you can definitely see how these guys can disappear from view in just a few short hops.
There actually seems to have been a drop in the cottontail population over the last ten years here in our part of Ohio.

Hello Asbed,
cute and adorable Eastern Cottontail with great ambiance.
very nice colour and sharpness.
best wishes,

Hello Asbed

Hello Asbed
exciting shot of this fast creature. But it stops and looks at you. Nice capture in good grassy background.
Nice clarity and sharpness.
