Rabbit Shoot

This field at Wookey Hole in Somerset was full of rabbits. They had to be photographed because as Easter approaches who does not love a bunny!

The Rabbit Shoot

I do not have a telephoto lens.  My macro lens has a small amount of magnification so I used that but I still had to work hard to get close enough.  Finally, lying on the ground, I got within about 10 yards for these pictures.  They must have seen me but they seemed happy for me to be there.

Then some walkers with a dog entered the field about a 100 yards away and all the rabbits ran away into the scrub.  It got me thinking – if you take a dog on a walk in the countryside do you wonder where all the nature is?
