Camouflage, 2011

rabbit under tree


I only noticed her because about five of my cats were very quietly clustered near the front door, keeping very still, which is very unusual for them. I saw nothing until I walked outside, and I realize she must have been grazing around under the birch and froze when I came out. Her stillness made for a good shot in that shadow, though if I didn’t have an eye for details she would have been perfectly camouflaged.

  1. Gah! why do the animals always run away from me but not away from other people 😛 I have tried to get photos of rabbits before, but they are all too afraid to stand still.

    • One of the secrets is that many people use really long telephoto lenses! But this bunny knows me, she lives in my yard so she’s not threatened by me.
