I like the hind legs reaching forward showing how much of the rabbits body is used while in full stride.

Stunning!

Behind The Lens

Location
This photo was taken in Ottawa, Ontario. I was walking out in an open field where I just so happened to catch a glimpse of this figure bolting across each clearing
Time
I remember it was a really dull looking morning, but I figured I'd drag myself out of bed anyways and make the most out of the day. Sometimes the mucky weather brings out the most unique little creatures, like this beautiful Showshoe Hare!
Lighting
It was a cloudy day with quite an overcast and there was a light drizzle of rain that added a bit of a gloom to the atmosphere.
Equipment
This photo was taken with a Canon 7D Mark ii paired with a Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS II USM lens - both hand held.
Inspiration
I've always wanted to get a really nice photo of a rabbit. They're something that most of us can see on a frequent basis in our neighborhoods, yet we never really stop to take a moment and enjoy them. I couldn't believe it when I came across this handsome little fellow. His charm just had to be shared!
Editing
Because of the poorer lighting conditions, I processed this photo through Adobe Photoshop in order to reduced some of the shadows and bring up the exposure a tad.
In my camera bag
I only ever bring my Canon 7D mark ii camera, Canon 100-440mm ii lens and a spare battery of course! It's the only gear I currently have as I'm quite new to photography, but my next stop is a tripod!
Feedback
Always remember to scan your immediate surroundings and the area ahead of you. If you remember to keep a keen eye for, you'll be sure to notice these camouflage experts!
