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.

    1. Thanks Alan, and the lens is the Sigma 150-600 Sport model zoom. So far I’ve been very impressed with it, a major improvement over their old 150-500 zoom I had before. Only downside is its size and weight–it’s a big guy and a bit unwieldy shooting handheld.

  1. Very nice shot, even if you were only “testing”! 🙂 I love how the light comes through its ears, translucent like my cat’s ears.
