Hello friends, this photo it is from my 2008 archives.

From Wikipedia: Earth Day is an annual event celebrated
on April 22. Worldwide, various events are held to
demonstrate support for environmental protection.

On this photo it is the Eastern Cottontail Rabbit.

1/60s f/4.2 ISO200 16.8mm (35mm eq:95mm).

From National Geographic website:

«There are several species of cottontail rabbit, but the
eastern cottontail is the most common. This ubiquitous
animal can be found from Canada to South America and,
in the United States, from the East Coast to the Great Plains.
Cottontails range from reddish brown to gray, but all feature
the distinctive “cotton ball” tail for which they are named.»

Dear Asbed,

Thank you for mentioning Earth Day here. Sorry for my late response. Lovely Cottontails.



A very apt posting on the Earth Day, Asbed. The Rabbit looks cute with that curious expression on its face.
We also celebrated the Earth Day in our school with a variety of activities.
I like the background in this picture.

Bonjour Asbed,

L'étendue de la pelouse donne de la profondeur à la composition. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails du lapin. La bonne luminosité fait ressortir les couleurs. Bonne journée.

Hello Asbed,
A wonderful shot to celebrate Earth Day. I don't see as many cottontails as I used to, but they are still quite common here in Ohio as well. Sharply focused and captured in an attractive relaxed pose. Well done!!

Hi Asbed,
Good shot, I don't know how I missed it in your gallery. Nice composition with a semi-diagonal line between the two layers (grass, trees), and the rabbit's pose is very spectacular. Effective composition. This was a valuable post not only to the Earth Day event, but I mean generally, too. Congratulations!
Kind regards from Ireland, László
