Brave Bunny in a Staring Context by taffy

Brave Bunny in a Staring Context

Thank you for your enthusiastic response to yesterday's swan. I was lucky to catch several shots as it rose and fluffed feathers and then seemed to change its mind about flying off.
Today, I was surprised to find this bunny and either an older sib or its mom in the garden. They seemed as surprised to see me, but then, they didn't take off for awhile, and instead almost posed for me to take pictures of them from different angles (they moved -- I held very still). I was glad I had the long telephoto already on my camera. I'm sure they would not have waited for me to change lenses!
What a darling bunny!

What a beautiful little face! Are the bunnies eating the new plants you have put into your garden? I bet they appreciate your new menu you are providing! Lol! Fav for this lovely capture!
June 20th, 2018  
I could just die for the cuteness of this little face!!! As Pam said, it IS a dilemma when your crops begin to disappear! @pamknowler The squirrels have found the avocado tree, and daily we pick up the thumb-sized fruit that would be next year's crop! (Damn Varmits! ; )

Love his huge ears. We have two feral rabbits wandering in our front garden. Luckily we have managed to rabbit-proof our back garden because they eat all the plants.
June 20th, 2018  
Aw. Such a lovely little fluffy bunny and what perfect eyes! Love it.
June 20th, 2018  
@Weezilou Oh NO, Louise! Don't you feed them enough already??? Now, they are taking advantage of you! Not the avocados?!?!? They should at least wait until you are gone...or maybe it is because you were gone, so they are taking out their revenge?!? :)

What a terrific shot of this rabbit Taffy, I've never seen a closeup as good as this one is. I do hope they're not feeding on your garden though. Rabbits are a declared noxious animal in Australia (not special breeds kept as pets) and untold amounts of money and resources have been devoted to trying to keep them under control. Not native to Oz, brought here by some of the early English settlers!!!

What a sweetie
June 20th, 2018  
Beautiful close-up!
June 20th, 2018  
Wonderful photo! He seems to have posed for you. Ours are a bit bolder and one, totally unconcerned, allowed Callum to creep up to within a couple of yards. I had to frighten it away for fear Callum might actually catch it!

Such a sweet capture and I love the lighting in it.

A great shot! I love the detail and the sparkle in his eyes.
June 21st, 2018  
He’s adorable and I like the dof and blur to draw him out
June 21st, 2018  
@golftragic Yes, I'm a bit worried they will take over when we are off island next week! They certainly didn't care that I was around.
June 21st, 2018  
@taffy Can you fence off the important bits of the garden?
June 21st, 2018  
@golftragic I wish...but the way ours is set up, I don't have a separate food garden, it's sort of mixed in with the regular plants. So, fencing isn't practical. I figure if I can keep about 60% of what I've planted, I have to be happy. Last year I lost all the lilies and hostas. I'm hoping to keep some of them this year...but not optimistic.
June 21st, 2018  
So cute!
June 21st, 2018  
Great focus on his eyes and such a sweet face. Bummer about the nibbling, though.
June 21st, 2018  
And another great shot, those eyes!
June 21st, 2018  
How adorable!
June 22nd, 2018  
@taffy Damn! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you. Maybe one of your neighbours' gardens may attract them instead of yours.
June 22nd, 2018  
Great image! FAV!
June 23rd, 2018  
Gorgeous photo! Excellent focus on face........nice soft DOF. (Just wish he hadn't eaten all of your Lilies!) Les
June 23rd, 2018  
Perfect focus on the right place. So 3D.
June 23rd, 2018  
Beautiful.
June 23rd, 2018  
Love that expression!
Great capture
June 26th, 2018  
Shots like this always make me want a bunny for a pet- then I think about what it would take to care for it and feed it- well the picture is just fine! Very cute!
June 27th, 2018  
What a cute little fuzzy rabbit. Great capture, Taffy. FAV
