Bunnies in the afternoon sunshine

Sitting at my desk on Wednesday, I spotted a bunny on the lawn in the far garden. I grabbed my camera (which is always nearby) and walked to the security gate at the big door. As I started to zoom in, I saw a movement to the right of me in Debbie's rock garden. 
One of the resident rabbits grazing in the middle garden beyond the gate

Another rabbit!
Another rabbit (probably related to the one on the lawn) sitting motionless in the rockery just outside the front door 
I struggled to get a whole image of the nearby rabbit because of the security bars

Returning to my first subject, I was fascinated to see how its ears were transparent in the afternoon sun 
I couldn't get a solid photo of this rabbit either as it was sitting behind a small tree
The veins are actually visible in the ears!

  1. Excellent pictures. Big! More like our Jack rabbits than the smaller Cotton Tailed rabbits we have.

    Happy New Year.

  2. Beautiful shots!

    Happy New Year to you. xx

  3. these are amazing, I love the sun showing us the veins in the ears. they are so beautiful and I like those great big ears... our rabbits here in Florida are only about half the size of yours.

  4. I love the sun shining through his pink ears!!

  5. Hello Jo, I love the cute rabbits and it's big ears. So cute, adorable photos. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post throughout the past year. Have a happy weekend! I wish you and your family all the best in 2017, Happy New Year!

  6. Wow, great photos of the rabbits. They have such huge ears! Our rabbits ears are much smaller.
    Take care!
