I've only seen cartoon renderings of jack rabbits--very nice photo! He's much more lean than the plump little bunnies devouring my landscape in the midwest!
Suprising that he didn't run away. Great shot.
You said: "His ears are much bigger than those of the cottontail rabbits back in Illinois."I believe that is because they are two different kinds of rabbits. Sometimes a little knowledge is a dangerous thing. And what I know about rabbits is a "little bit!" lol I believe that the jack rabbit is a hare, while the cotton tail isn't. I'll likely get corrected by someone that does know!! :D
Iona...I didn't know that! Their tails are different, too. Not tight and fluffy (or white), but black, and kind of long-ish, like a dog that has a docked tail.Always learning something new! :-)
'The better to hear you with my dear!' lol This is a great shot! Love all the textures and details around this hare. (Thanks Iona!)
What do you think?
