Hi All

Just thought i would share a picture from this afternoon. Wife and i were Sitting in the backyard enjoying the Beautiful weather and low and behold a 5-10 ft away we Spot our elusive bunny.
The picture was taken on Full auto, as my wife was playing with It earlier and i was using my 28-105. The picture was at 105MM about 9.5 and 1/250-500 ISO was auto.

Nice capture, BK!

That is the magic of having the camera in your hands at exactly the right moment.

You can get some bunny food and start leaving it out for him/her and she will get used to coming in for a bite to eat. Slowly move it closer to your house or wherever and then you can start to see the times of day that the bunny comes to feed. Then set your camera up for some focus trap shots.

My dad did the same with some magpies and ended up with about 5 or more that would visit everyday at the ame time and feed out of his hand.

Only comment I would add about leaving food for your wild rabbit. People started noticing a larger than normal number of dead rabbits not far from where I live. They trapped and tested a number of rabbits and foundmany positive for rabbit fever, an insect transmitted disease that humans can get. There are lots of wild jackrabbits in our area, including a couple that I see on our street all the time, and I hate to think of them getting sick and dying (am I an old softie or what!). Just something to think about when feeding wild animals.
