Two brown hares - the male is to the right, and had been standing guard over the female who had been lying low in her form. There were six hares in this field, and I spent a good three hours commando crawling closer and closer.

Ha, ha! A different take on "going commando". :) Wonderfully clear and sharp, really great shot.

Nice shot! The times I've tried to shoot hares all I end up with is an empty frame.

Underrated IMO. Very nice shot. Of course top 51 in a Free Study is always a smashing success but I think this should have placed higher.

only place 51? Can't believe. It was a 10 from me because this was one of best in challenge! It's underrated!
This is wonderful seen, perfect DOF, great colors, etc! And a really lovely moment!

The depth on this is really nice, it really brings out the subtle action of the two hares. Cool stuff.

Sara this is just wonderful. I love it.

The hares are wonderful, and nicely isolated from their surrounding. I think I would like the image better if some of the foreground blur was cropped away. But that is just my personal reaction to most foreground blur. Congratulations on a really high placement in the very large field of entries.

Looks like I owe you 10 comments for winning our Free Study side challenge. Your DOF here is perfect, and I really like the 3 bands of color further framing the rabbits. The solid blur in the extreme forground it a bit distracting; for whatever reason I like background bokeh more than foreground bokeh.

That's the wrong end for bunny spring activities.

Love this shot. The rabbits' fur and eyes are amazingly clear.
