A Mad Hare Day / Snowshoe Hare by 

A Winter shot and I could barely fit him into the viewfinder with my 400 fixed focal length. This image has less than 10% cropped off the right side and 10% off of the bottom for composition.

The little black thing below the mouth is a seed casing or something stuck to him…I left it

Photographed at Shirleys bay near the Ottawa River Ottawa West Ontario Canada.

    This is wonderful! Hurray that you managed to fit this into your lens! Great image Gary!!!

  • Thanks so much Robin :-) I was pretty happy to get a clear background. Most shots I have of these guys, they are in the thicker underbrush.
