Do the Ears Give Me Away

There were a lot of Jackrabbits when I visited the Sacramento NWR complex back in February. Their first reaction when they spotted me was to go into the brush and freeze. An admirable strategy when the predator is just a paparazzi who is in a vehicle that he’s not supposed to leave.

This is great Dennis, and yes, I’m afraid, the ears do give this rabbit away. I am always amazed how the coloring and texture of nature protect the animals so well, this is a great example.

Dennis, the hare is well hidden, but it’s antennae stand out strongly. Someone needs to talk to that hare about keeping it’s ears down… :grin: A cool shot that tells a fine story.
