You Can't See Me!

This baby bunny - small enough to fit in the palm of my hand - was munching on some leaves just outside our RV last week.  I managed to get quite close, as you can see by the photos.  Once I got really close, he stopped chewing and appeared to be frozen.  I didn't torment the wee little thing too long before I turned my back so he could run away.  And, run away he did - super-fast - just like a ...well, just like a rabbit!



Well, you won't be able to see me if I hold really still and don't even breathe!
I was using my new 150-500mm lens, so I was 7.5' away from him at this point.  Pretty neat, huh?  You can see my reflection in his frightened eye!

Good eye to see your reflection in his eye! These little guys are amazing creatures in how independent they can be.

Isn't he the cutest?

We have rabbits on our property for the first time this year, two different varieties. Thankfully our veggie garden is already caged in due to the deer problem. We're becoming quite the wildlife preserve. lol

I'm glad you enjoyed my cat and mouse story. Pan surveyed the fireplace a couple of times yesterday, and sat there for a while 'watching' last night, but I think he was just making sure that everything was as it should be. No more problems (we left the trap up last night just in case). I can't imagine rats. Omg....I'm glad that was taken care of. How awful! Some day I'll have to tell about the ants that invaded our first home when our neighbor set fire to a rotted tree stump right next to our house.

My largest lens is 80/300 and it certainly isn't enough most of the time. Enjoy your new one!

We have rabbits like this around our house, too, but it's been a long time since I've seen a baby. Glad you gave him a chance to run off, quick like a bunny!

Baby bunnies are so adorable - this one looks like he's enjoying his munching and since he sat quite still for your photograph purposes, I think he enjoyed being your "subject matter" !!
