Be very, very quiet…..

When I mentioned in my blog yesterday that I had no luck with wildlife photos the day that we went to the sanctuary, I forgot about one little friend that I made.  At one point my hubby was fishing while I was walking  around with my camera on a monopod when all of a sudden I saw what appeared to be a jackrabbit in the distance.  Well, I immediately went into Elmer Fudd mode creeping down the road repeating to myself “be very, very quiet, we’re going wabbit hunting”, although obviously I was hunting photos of the rabbit not actually the rabbit itself.

I found incredible patience that day and very slowly approached Bugs Bunny.  When I got as close as I thought was possible without scaring him off, I steadied the camera and telephoto lens on the monopod and got ready to snap some distance pictures.  Then, to my surprise, as I stood motionless Bugs Bunny started running towards me.  I couldn’t believe it!  I started snapping pictures, and he kept on coming.  The camera wasn’t completely steady (probably because I was excited), so the shots were a little blurry and I had to do some sharpening after the fact, but I was thrilled nonetheless.  Eventually he ran right by my feet.  He must have thought I was a tree or something.

    I also find it hard to photo wildlife. I think you got a good shot of the rabbit 🙂
