Hey Rich, in German I would say -Kampfhase- to this beast ;-)! What a luck that your camara was (is always) by your side...


Yellow star of course!

Greetings H.S., As I recall from the movie "Quest for the Holy Grail" this is not a bunny to be taken lightly. Beware and give wide berth when you see this beast. ;-))

Greetings Herr Sonstiges and Sms2info, Thanks for visiting the white rabbit and commenting. Sorry to have missed your visit. I like this fellow because he bears a strong resemblence to the rabbit in the "Holy Grail", perhaps a cousin vacationing in the West. I was fortunate to have gotten a peak at him without suffering any serious injuries.

Greetings Epi, Thank you for visiting and commenting on the gentle looking killer bunny...;-)) He looked so comfortable on his front porch watching all the hikers go by on the trail. No one knew he was there. He just melted into the snow. I am glad you like him.

That is a great description of the bunny. His thoughts were powerful enough to fool all but one. Does that mean I am smarter than a bunny? ;-))

I vividly remember my first winter in Fairbanks, sitting in a foxhole at -40F and suddenly out of the bush the beast lunged forward. We stared at each other from five paces. Hours past in mear seconds would the beast attack or would I survive this encounter. The beast recognizing that I was less intelligent than he hopped merrily on his way. I was cold but elated I had survived this real life encounter with the “east of the Cave of Caerbannog.” As you so aptly named it. Seriously Awesome picture. I have been almost nose to nose with one while in a foxhole while stationed in Alaska, so the story is mostly true. Truly beautiful creatures to behold.

Beware of what you see civilians. The rare non-horned jackalobe white hair is more mysterious then possibly presumed. Being discovered after the 1979 Roswell UFO crash, it is truly an exceptional capture of this rare space creature disguised as the even rarer non-horned jakalobe white hair. Real non-horned jackalobe white hair's are unusually happy, contrarily this animal is particularly plump and offended.

For more information: See someone else... Professor P.W. Jenkins

Well, I am not progressing very quickly, Rich. Your detail shots, intriguing stories and animal captures are all slowing me down. I am as far as your 2nd page - working backwards of course.

This is just simply a very lovely photo of a very endearing little beast - a joy to witness. Beautiful in every way - gold stars*** yet again. -alicia
