As soon as I saw him this baby Cottontail just captivated me and so I posted this today instead of what I had planned to. He’s hardly any larger than a softball, and in my opinion has the concept of “cute” all wrapped up! He certainly should not have let me get that close though.

Baby Cottontail

This morning I think I set a brand new standard for being obnoxious: you’re supposed to frighten rabbits, not just merely annoy them with your camera! This adult didn’t have as much patience as the baby.



  1. So the adult was less patient, less trusting, and not near as cute. Huh…sounds like my family.

  2. Terry, I hope you don’t mind, but this popped into my head, almost fully formed.
    Great shots!

  3. Pinhole,
    I guess rabbits are not so different from other people at that, are they?

  4. wolf,
    That’s really funny! I love it! I relate to that so well… I think you know how much I like a city and crowds anyway.

  8. you don’t get much cuter than baby anything… it’s nice that you were able to get the shot. Nice job. We don’t have as many bunnies up here (um…. too many bobcats and cougars I think) I also… can’t find a raccoon for the life of me! My theory? Skunk is the last meat a cougar will eat – thus we have lots of those!!! We really lack these smaller guys. :o) It’s refereshing to see them on your site. Great shots!

  9. We have a few raccoons around, but I’ve not been able to get close to them, at least yet. It seems like this year there are lots of Cottontails, when the last several years they were very scarce. I’ve seen quite a few snowshoes too but haven’t gotten close enough for a photo.

  10. I can’t believe I am going to use the word I swore I would never use, “CUTE” yes the little bunny is “CUTE”, there now I said it you will never hear me use that word again. See what you made me do Terry, your photography has made me break a promise I made to myself, you should be ashamed.

  11. Sorry, Bernie. “The bunny made me do it.”
