hello friends, with this photo i come
to wish you a Happy Easter and
Peace & Love all around the world

from New Hampshire Public Television website

« The eastern cottontails is solitary and
very territorial. It is mostly nocturnal, but it
sometimes will come out in the early morning
and at dusk and sometimes during the day on
dark days. The eastern cottontail can leap distances
of between 10 and 15 feet. It will sometimes stand
on its hind feet to watch for predators like coyotes,
foxes, weasels, eagles and hawks. When a predator
is chasing it, the eastern cottontail will often leap
from side to side to break its scent trail. It can
run at speeds of up to 15 miles an hour. »

Bonjour Asbed,

Fantastic pose of a very unique and rare bird. :) I saw this species flying and believe me, it's beautiful in flight. :)

Great portrait of a rabbit sitting in a fine pose. You composed more space in front of than behind him (so the composition's good), lights are marvelous, so are the colors in the shady parts. Maybe 1/125 was a little too slow for this scene, there's a little overexposion (very little indeed) on the rabbit and on the double tree in the background - otherwise a fabulous capture. Congrats and tfs.

Friendly regards, have a nice weekend, László

Hello Asbed,
Very beautiful and sharp detailed photo. Good low POV, composition and DOF.

Hi Asbed
This is one of the Easter sign to us!
Great capture!

Bonjour Asbed,

Les arbres et le gazon cadrent bien le lièvre. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleur du lièvre. L'image est claire et nette. La lumière éclaire bien le sujet et donne de belles couleurs. Bon weekend.


Hi Asbed.
Happy Easter to you too,my friend.
Good picture chosen for this occasion.
Friendly regards.Alin.

Bonjour Asbed,
Avec les poussins et les oeufs, les lapins sont un des grands symboles de Paques. Celui-ci est superbe, avec une lumiere fantastique. Bonne fete a toi et ta famille. Amities,
(depuis Ikaria en Grece, desolee pour les accents manquants...)

Hello Asbed friend,
This is the most natural way to shoot a rabbit! excellent environment, impeccable depth, we can say that is a landscape with a rabbit included!
Good Easter for you and your people my dear friend, I send you a big hug from Venezuela. Greetings and thanks for the photo you share with us. Jesus

Bonjour Asbed
Il est super ce lapin
Joyeuses Pâques pour toi aussi

Hello Asbed,
a splendid capture of the Eastern Cottontail taken from an excellent POV, very good sharpness and bright colours, i like the contrast of lights and shades, very well composed.
Happy Easter to you too.
Ciao Maurizio

Excelente ángulo de disparo y mucha habilidad para captar al conejo en esa pose... no es fácil.
Se escapó algo la luz en el mamífero pero en general buen trabajo.
Saludos Asbed: J. Ignasi.
