I know that you can’t see me!
During my walk on Saturday morning, I came upon this guy, contentedly nibbling grass and weeds along the sidewalk next to a major street. I don’t think that either of us were paying too much attention. I was enjoying the walk, looking at the clouds, feeling the breeze, etc. He was having breakfast.

I was probably about 6 or 8 feet away from him by the time that I noticed him. I came to a dead stop, pulled my Canon S90 out of my pocket, and took about 6 shots. Mind you, this shot is not cropped much and the S90 has only a 3.2x optical zoom, so to get this much detail, I had to be pretty close.

The rabbit’s response to danger is to stand absolutely still and try to blend in with the surroundings; For a photographer, this is a dream come true. He did just that, stood absolutely still, letting me take a few photos as I inched closer and closer, taking photos all the while. Eventually, I got too close and he decided that it was better to run than remain still.

Thanks guy! I hope that I didn’t disturb your breakfast too much!
