Marsh Rabbit

by Shane Coleman April. 26, 2019 194 views

Recently I went to a place called Peveto Woods. It is land owned by the Baton Rouge Audubon Society and serves as a bird sanctuary for birds returning from their migration. Although I did get photos of different bird species, it was the Marsh Rabbits that caught my attention and occupied most of my time. I have many photos I hope to share but I haven’t edited them yet. I at least wanted to post one because I just couldn’t wait. I really had a great time watching these little guys.

Right before sunset, they were everywhere and were eating like crazy. At one point while I was laying on the ground, I had one come right up to me, stare for a while, and eventually hopped off slowly. He was so close, he actually had to hop over one of my tripod legs. What a great experience!

Thanks.

I have a hate love relationship with rabbits. I love watching them but I hate when they would get into the garden. Sweet shot of one.

Yea, after watching them go to work on the vegetation around there, I can only imagine what they would do to a garden. 

Around here, they are a common meal for the coyotes. At the refuge, you frequently see mounds of rabbit hair on the levees. 

Thanks.

Thank you, Sherry. I try to achieve this whenever possible in my wildlife photography. I really love the effect.
