This snow shoe hare has his winter fur and blends well into the background. In this afternoon picture he is sitting at the entrance to his burrow, soaking up the warmth of the sunshine. Dozens of hikers passed him, not 30 feet away and never knew he was there.
I found interesting, that he looks completely calm. I saw also your other pictures of animals. And they let you come close. Strange...
seems like a little bit angry, or maybe too serious......hey you , yeah you with the camera move along men!!!..
and as u were saying a lots of hikers walk looking down, a shame , i try not to miss those kind of things
PERFECT !. My favorite animal !.
We were watching the Monty Python and the Holy Grail last night and when Tim warned Arther about the rabbit, it struck me. The rabbit has that look. Marcos Mauricio saw that look in his eyes. Yes, he is cute, but, hmmmm, dangerous....
Be wary in the woods
Yes ! I agree on the look. I was going for rabbit hunting when my grandpa was stil alive, and I have noticed many rabbit looks in my life !.
For sometime I was breeding wild rabbits/ hare in the backyard of my house until I moved.
this one has the evil eye, although he has the 'a few seconds before I disappear' look embeeded as well.
I think the reference to the "Beast of the Cave" may have been lost on some :). It's a great picture of a snowshoe hare. I watched one for about 20 minutes through a fogged-up window last year, knowing it would disappear the minute I tried to exit the snowcoach for a picture, which of course, it did!
Happy Easter ALL.
Great reference, I love it! I knew the second I saw your title. But how the heck did you know how to spell Caerbannog? Or did you?;)
Good Morning ElainaG, Thank you for visiting the "Beast". It must be an older person thing. I have several different media iterations of the movie and some actually had the name printed. Otherwise I would have been at a loss trying to capture the correct annunciation from a sound bite. Glad you liked it.
Greetings Gigi91, Thanks so much for visiting my collection and finding the killer rabbit. The beast has been spotted several times the last few winters, so it is still not safe in the woods.
Greetings D&H, They tried in England, but after it killed several knights they resorted to the Holy Handgrenade and blew him up, or so they thought. I believe he made his escape to America, disguised as a brewer of fine beers and made his way to the Rocky Mountains, where he now lurks at higher elevations.
Great shot! Congratulations!
Greetings Alfred, Thanks for bravely visiting the killer rabbit from Monty Python and The Holy Grail. I just loved the way he hung out on his front porch watching us go by.
Greetings Hamzars, Thanks for visiting the Snowshoe Hare and commenting. I've only seen a couple of these guys in all the winters. They are fun to look at.
Greetings La Mugna, Thanks for visiting and commenting on the winter hare. It was pretty neat seeing him and getting pictures. A lot of people went by him and didn't know he was there.
