Default Some grab shots of a rabbit

Not an animal of which that I usually take photos. However, I see them from time to time when I go to the neighborhood wetlands to look for birds. Came across a couple of rabbits in the grass during the time I was there. Got a few quick shots before they would hop back into the weeds. E-3 and 50-200mm.

Excellent photos - you must have a good camera.

Just kidding. What do you think happened to the second one's ear? The notches are too small for a gator...

Thanks Ted: Yes, I will be the first to give all credit to the camera; love that E-3. It feels good just to pick up and hold. As to the notches in the ear, I have no idea, but it does look like something was after him when he was younger.

Well I do recall that you have a few POTDs from before you got the E3 so maaaaaybe there's some skill involved.

I like the cottontail, always have. They make so much more sense than do the dumb jackrabbits of the SW, They also are not as 'stupid' as the Texas jack-a-lope.

Thanks Lordje. But I only shoot with a camera, and our whole subdivision is a wildlife preserve, so all the rabbits, birds, and other animals have no worry about hunters. (Except for the pack of wild feral hogs that invaded the woods and started tearing up everything; and they brought in special hunters to go after them.)
