Eastern Cottontail Rabbit In The Open

By | February 28, 2020

I am beginning to see the Eastern Cottontail Rabbit out in the open here in my area. I see them year around, but in the winter I only get glimpses of them.

This Rabbit has appeared in the same area for the past several days. It allows me to get close and I have also been seeing another one in this same spot.

How I Got The Shot – Eastern Cottontail Rabbit In The Open

I saw this Rabbit near my place in the Ouachita Mountains of Arkansas.

I was hand holding a Canon EOS 7D Mark II camera with a EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens attached.
