What a cutie, he really looks like Thumper! Beautiful thick fur, and very nice of him to pose for you :)
It is nice to get such fun comments on this photo. Thank you!
So adorable! Great photo!
I agree Marta, Cutest of all.
@ willifromwi - Thanks! I applied an adaptive sampling (default settings) to the jpg file. Unsharp mask brings out a bit more detail to an otherwise soft image. Sometimes this can make an image pop and feel more 3d.
Nice spotting of your young little hare. Did you use HDR and if not, however did you get this to look so 3D?
Yes snowshoe hares are brown in summer and white in winter! They need the camouflage protection from lynx, owls, hawks, etc. I understand just as important in their survival is their use of dense understory for cover and their speed. Although this little guy did not move when approached :-)
These are the rabbits that turn white in winter?
Absolutely adorable :)
