Behind The Lens

Location
I took this photo in the ranch where I live, in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Black tailed rabbit are quite common here but still shine. I have been observing one of them going in the same area every day at the same time, this make me save a lot of time. When I set my camera and got ready to shot I've waited about 10/15 minutes before taking the shot.
Time
It was about 18:30; it was summer and here in the desert is quite hot, most of the animals come out late, when the sun start to go down and they are active until the first lights of the day.
Lighting
Actually I wanted to get a more natural picture of this animal. I set my tripod as low as I could, I lay down and I covered the camera and my self with an old bed sheet, I din't want attract any attention but when I saw the photo I was quite happy about the funny pose of the rabbit
Equipment
I used a Nikon D750 on a tripod, a Nikon 300mm F2.8 and a 2X teleconverter
Inspiration
I like wildlife photography mainly and I like to "collect" pictures of any animals. I know that a rabbit are pretty common everywhere but this was missing from my "collection"
Editing
No, any post-processing, I don't like it and honestly I don't know how to do it. I think that photography is done with a camera and not with a computer
In my camera bag
I'm a traveler, I left my country 5 years ago to travel and take pictures so I'm bringing with me only the essential for doing wildlife photography: A camera, a tripod, a teleconverter and 2 lenses, a 300mm f2.8 and a 28-300 f5.6
Feedback
If you are trying to take shots of wild animal I think that the best think is patience. I found out that the best think to do is to observe the environment, know the behavior of the animal you want to shot, find a spot where to hide and just wait. They will come to you
