Black-tailed Jackrabbit (Lepus californicus)
This young Blacktail jackrabbit blends into his surrounding very well. These rabbits are very fast with the largest reaching speeds of 40-45mph with leaps covering 19ft per bound. Life with the coyote.....survival.
I live in the western region of the Edwards Plateau, deep in the Texas Hill Country. I'm an avid outdoorsman spending a large portion of my time "out there" roaming the wide open spaces. Much of my photography is simply an extension of a very active outdoor lifestyle.
The challenges posed with closing the distance, pursuing wildlife photography, is an absolute hoot for me! The experience out there alone is everything to me. If I capture pixels along the way , it's icing on the cake.
