POTD: Convenient Target

A grab shot from testing my new telephoto lens from a convenient perch on our porch. Rabbits are a sure subject matter around our house these days. We’ve had a rabbit or two living under our porch for several years but this year that’s turned into nearly a dozen of all ages. They’re all quite tame and hardly flinch when we come outside.

Everyone else we know is seeing lots of rabbits this year too. I read rabbit populations tend to run in cycles of about ten years. We’re obviously at or near (hopefully) the high point of one of the cycles. I also read that coyote population cycles follow those of the rabbits pretty closely. We’re still waiting for them to show up around the house.
