Usually they run away, but this one just sat their near my car to give me enough time to get the camera out and take some shots.

Nice. I like the lighting x-ray effect throught the ears.

Very nice shots, bobbyz! These are jackrabbits, aren't they? They're all over the place down in your area!

I never realized that their ears were bifurcated like this one's. What's up with that?

(Edit: I just looked this up in my mammals field guide and while I thought this was the White-Tailed Jackrabbit, those don't occur towards the coast in California, but the Black-Tailed Jackrabbit does. My field guide does not indicate that the ears are ever sliced at the tips like this one's is. Perhaps this is an indication by wildlife managers of ???? - in the same way in which farm-raised salmon have clipped dorsal fins).
