[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is an animal that I have trouble photographing. They always spot me long before I spot them. This one was across a little stream from where I was standing. I was trying to get as close as I could without falling in the stream.

The only time I have got close to a rabbit was at a bus stop next to a busy road. It was winter and about 9.00pm so it was dark. A rabbit hopped out of a bush. Came over to me and sat at my feet looking up at me. We stood staring at each other for about 20 mins before the rabbit hopped back into his bush. It was lovely but I didn't have my camera!

Hi Karan,

Lovely capture of this adorable bunny. I love the shy pose. He probably thinks he is hidden by the grass. Lovely catch-light in his eye and I love his cute pink ear. Nice colors, details, and great grassy setting.


Hello Karan,
Very cute looking fellow!
good exposure and focus on this captured with clarity and details
well composed and well seen

I really love this photo, and you're correct, bunnies don't stay put too long. Nice pov, soft colors, and detail.

Hi Karan, lovely little rabbit, splendid colors and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Karan,
Amazing how you catch them in their habitat and with such perfection. Very neat image and sharp details with lovely colour tones. Love the way it sits there in a cosy pose. Great POV and a superb composition. You narrate a wonderful experience anyone would be proud of and feel good about. Kudos.

Hola Karan,
delicado retrato,
simpática escena,
excelente foco y pov,
saludos amiga.

Hi Karan,
what a cute shot, a soft sweet bunny rabbit. Great POV and nice natural colors. TFS

Hi Karan,
Talk about getting a cute shot from a rabbit. When refering to the language of rabbits, this one does look a little afraid. I do understand your problem with capturing these animals. they really have a huge personal space. I might have been lucky with mine because they are living on a campsite and I had a 400mm lens.
You did manage to procude a great photo, with excellent details and perfect colors.

Hello Karan,
I love this little shy look this beautiful creature has :) This is a tender and very sweet picture. Well done!

Hi Karan.
What a nice meeting, beautiful little guy and wonderful shot of it. I am touched by your story too. Amazing low POV, excellent reproduction of spontaneity of this little creature, its hair and expression of the eyes. I like the grass sea too. So harmonic view and skillfully done picture. My compliments and TFS.
