Eastern cottontail

Eastern Cottontail Rabbit 6988

On July 10th I participated in Val Bugh’s weekly survey of animals observed on the grounds of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, where one find was this eastern cottontail, Sylvilagus floridanus. I started taking pictures with a telephoto lens from a good distance away because I didn’t know when the rabbit would bolt, but I slowly advanced and it let me get closer than I thought it would. Good thing it did, because now I can present the first picture of a rabbit ever to appear here.
