There are several species of cottontail rabbit, but the eastern cottontail is the most common. This ubiquitous animal can be found from Canada to South America and, in the United States, from the East Coast to the Great Plains. Cottontails range from reddish brown to gray, but all feature the distinctive “cotton ball” tail for which they are named. This little guy was eating in my back yard in Morris County, NJ. I used a Nikon D3100 digital camera, and a Nikon 70-300mm zoom lens.
