This Swamp Rabbit eating grass was photographed near the Ouachita National Forest here in Arkansas. I have a Swamp Rabbit that feeds in my yard and lets me get close to it. This one surprised me by letting me get close to it.
How I Got The Shot – Swamp Rabbit
I was walking a gravel road when I spotted this Rabbit. When it first saw me it ran into the woods. When I passed by it came out of the woods and began eating. I turned and walked back to it and it fed toward me. A couple of times it came within 6 foot of me.
I was hand-holding a Fujifilm X-T3 camera with a Canon EF 100-400 mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II lens attached with a Fringer EF-FX Pro.
