...
Your choice of viewing angle shows off that horn quite well - quite impressive looking insect. I'm glad they are not as large as a rhino...

CJ- Your bunny doesn't look like the rabbits around here. Is it a Jackrabbit?

Re: Photographed TODAY (or Processed today) con't

shari that is a great shot of the grape leaves and well spotted

Roob great shots out of interest did you take a full length one as well ? ( thinks how much the dress must of cost and would want a memento of all of it )


C.J. great ones of the rabbit ( they come second to cats for me ) it was while i was watching a wildlife programme that they pointed out how hard it was to photograph a wild rabbit

Gary stunning shot of a horned beetle i love bugs in close up well only in photographs not real life

Where are you located? Eastern U.S.?
When I first saw this rabbit, I thought (hoped) it was a jackrabbit, but that was weeks ago and it would be bigger by now if it were a jack. Also I did photograph its tail - which looks like the desert cottontail. I did a bit of wildlife rehab and took in some cottontail babies (eyes closed for first several weeks) and a couple of jackrabbit babies (born with eyes open and about the size of the palm of a woman's hand). Some of the cottontails would stamp their feet at me when I tried to pick them up for their feeding, but the jacks were sweet and ALWAYS ready to feed from their bottle. Those ears really grow about the 4th week, as I recall, and are beautiful in the sunlight as they are translucent and glow red from the capillaries/veins.

Palms, I grew up reading the story of Marshmallow the rabbit by Clare Turlay Newberry (The moral: A bunny's a delightful habit, no home's complete without a rabbit. ) who convinced Oliver the cat that bunnies were nice for cuddling rather than eating. I have been in love with bunnies ever since. I don't think there is anything as soft as a bunny - even one of my cats. Photographing just requires a telephoto lens - they will stop and stay still, hoping you won't see them, and can be photographed if you don't get close. Do you have any bunnies?

Palms: I didn't get the whole dress from top to bottom, since I mostly do head shots, not many full length shots.

CJ: OMG the ears on that rabbit! I have wild rabbits living in the back yard, they often venture up to the house and hide under the house bridge, but they have no ears like that!

Gary: That bug is awesome, it reminds me of Starship Troopers.

..... and, here was my photo project for the day .....

Roob -- that chopper kinda looks like one of Gary's bugs... without that rhino horn. Is it a working piece of machinery? Images look like it's ready for Star Wars.

Oh yes, it's from 1977, but it still flies missions daily.

CJ-I live in Western Pennsylvania (not to be confused with Eastern PA which is a whole different entity, according to our state government). Our rabbits here are chubby with much smaller ears. I don't have any pictures, thanks to our dog, who will not let a rabbit set foot on our property.
