A Profile of an Eastern Cottontail by 

About a month ago, there were a few Cottontails out in the early morning before the heat came in and I was able to get some good shots. For some reason, I have good luck with rabbits as I can get quite close without them running for cover. I really liked the detail I captured in this profile shot. I hope you enjoy this one as well!

This was taken at Tanglewood Nature Center in Elmira NY.

The scientific name for this species is: Sylvilagus floridanus.

    Great detailed capture Robert, I normally get their little fluffy tails bouncing off across the field, what’s your secret, a giant Rabbit disguise? Have a super weekend, regards, Mark.

  • Thank you Mark! I should try that rabbit disguise maybe I’ll get even closer (LOL). :)
