Unscardy Rabbit!

The rabbits of Cape May Lighthouse State Park and the Meadows (Cape May Migratory Bird Sanctuary of the Nature Conservancy) are among the most secure rabbits I have encountered. True there are a lot of people around throughout the year, but I am still not certain how they have become so confident. This fellow was caught out nibbling on some grasses in the shade of a trail-side bush, and let me approach very closely. All he did was cock up into this classic pose 🙂

Canon SX20IS at 560mm equivalent. F5.7 @ 1/200th @ ISO 200. Landscape program.

In Lightroom, a bit of Recovery for the highlights in the sand and on the fur. Fill Light and Blackpoint right to extend the apparent contrast range. Added Clarity and a touch of Vibrance. Sharpen landscape preset.

From World Series of Birding 2010.

    Really like the background colors in this one. The bunny’s fur is a nice compliment to it.And of course, the bunny is cute.

    The separation from the background is great and I second the comment about the colour and detail of the fur.
