Baby Mountain Cottontail Rabbit

OMG How darn cute is this little guy???

Baby Mountain Cottontail Rabbit

I first saw this baby Mountain Cottontail rabbit yesterday outside our fence when I was mowing. This morning we couldn’t figure out why the dogs were super excited in the backyard. Once the dogs were put inside, this little guy came back out from under the deck to finish breakfast eating grass and clovers. All I had to do was sit motionless in a chair in the yard and he/she came within 10 feet of me without even seeing me.

This was photographed hand-held with the Get Olympus OM-D E-M1X camera and the M.Zuiko 300mm f4 IS Pro lens. Shot at ISO 800 at 1/400s at f5.6.
