Wildlife: the hairy yellow eyeball
PRAIRIE HARE, CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA
Larger and leaner than your standard rabbit, these hares are very common where I live. It’s a rare day when I don’t see at least two or three on my front lawn, or in the back lane or hanging out at the neighbourhood park.
This one, on my lawn, didn’t move when I walked past on the front walk. So I went inside, put the 70-300 mm. zoom lens on my Nikon D7100, then spent a half-hour sitting on my butt and slowing moving ever closer to make all kinds of compositions. This one is appealing because his (her?) one ear is partly at attention.
