""Now, my dears," said old Mrs. Rabbit one morning, "You may go into the fields or down the lane, but don't go into Mr. McGregor's garden. "Your father had an accident there; he was put in a pie by Mrs. McGregor."

TIME:  6:25 PM
PLACE:  Across the alley
SUBJECT:  A rabbit

As I was putting some chocolate chip cookies in the oven to bake (don't be impressed, they were pre-made frozen dough from a school fundraiser) I looked out the window and saw a rabbit sloowly hopping from our garden to our driveway.  I'm sure he was in there nibbling away at our plants, so I thought I would shoot him...with my camera of course!  By the time I made it outside, he had hopped down the alley and into the yard across the way.  Thank goodness for a fence post to rest the camera and my optical zoom on my Canon PowerShot S2 IS.  I got him!  You'd better stay away from my tomatoes or I'll put you into a pie you furry rodent!

Great photo. We had three rabbits playing in our backyard last night. Everytime I would get focused in on them they would run off the other way!
I finally gave up trying to get a pic and just watched them play!

I've tried to get a shot of the ones around here too, but they don't sit at all! Nice shot!
