I'm glad you missed that lovely rabbit, big eyes and ears, perhaps it is waiting for Alice.

Comment by: Roy on 15th September 2014 at 00:12

John, great pic, but i hope he wasn't shot.

Comment by: Hugh Wilson on 15th September 2014 at 00:52

That's a hare, not a rabbit.

Comment by: Alan (Vancouver Island) on 15th September 2014 at 02:04

What do you mean by "shot"? Was the photo shot, or was the rabbit shot? Was the rabbit left alive ?

Otherwise, good pic.

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 15th September 2014 at 07:21

Did you roast it or make a stew, John!

Comment by: game keeper on 15th September 2014 at 07:22

Yeah they need shooting...!!!
But not just in aspull, they cause havoc to the crops everywhere

Comment by: Mick on 15th September 2014 at 07:23

Why shoot a poor little thing like a rabbit.

Comment by: naturelover on 15th September 2014 at 07:24

Hopefully the only "shot" was of the photo and a great one taken.

Comment by: Anne on 15th September 2014 at 07:55

Hugh is right, it's a hare. Good picture John.

Nice shot :) Hard to tell Hare and Rabbit apart sometimes.

I'm going for Rabbit :)

Comment by: Ron D on 15th September 2014 at 08:40

You got one at last John. Patience pays off. He has stalked them since early Spring, and that's worth the wait.

Comment by: Maureen on 15th September 2014 at 08:55

Peep...lovely photo John.

A bald man had a rabbit on his head, from a distance it looked like hare.

Not seen the one we get in our garden in Blackrod for a few days, now I know it's on it's holidays in Aspull!!!!

Comment by: Ernest Pyke on 15th September 2014 at 11:24

naturelover; I used to shoot rabbits on my uncle`s farm in Somerset and my auntie always roasted them. You had to beware when eating them as my uncle couldn`t remove all the pellets!

Comment by: Dave b on 15th September 2014 at 12:35

Well done John,photographed sat down ,at least he didn't hop it.....like it well worth the wait.

I`ve seen giant rabbits in Moss Bank Park, Bolton.
See:-

Extract:-
"Then there's the "animal world". It begins with a walk through a butterfly house - it's genuinely enchanting to have those guys all a-fluttering round you. After this, out in the open you'll find all manner of giant rabbits, love birds, deer and some beautiful albino peacocks."

Lovely photo.

Comment by: Derek Callaghan on 15th September 2014 at 16:52

Rabbits are really brilliant, especially surrounded by roast spuds, carrots peas and cauliflower and lashings of gravy. Am slaverin already

They're not when full of Myxomatosis, my son and his partner moved to Bryn and their daughters pet rabbits had to be put to sleep by the vet after a while, apparently the wild rabbits around there have Myxomatosis and the pet rabbits had caught it, most probably from being bitten by either fleas or midges.

Comment by: Lizziedownunder on 15th September 2014 at 22:08

It is defenitely a rabbit....we lost a pet rabbit to Myxie ....horrid disease....anyway lovely photo John....cheers!!

Reply to Roy, when I said shot I shot it with my camera, I love wild life, I could never harm any wild life. Thanks for all your comments. The hunter shoots life & ends it I shoot life to preserve it for eternity

Comment by: A Bolton on 15th September 2014 at 23:40

Fantastic photo John...Patients is a virtue!

Comment by: Pw on 16th September 2014 at 17:34

John is it a rabbit or a hare?.It deserves to be on a calendar.

Comment by: Jean F (Wales) on 16th September 2014 at 21:54

Gorgeous picture.

Comment by: George on 17th September 2014 at 17:16

Jean F ( Wales). Love, your love of life, you seem to like everything. Has there been a picture you disliked? Good on you Jean.. Have the odd feeling that this will be taken the wrong way. Hope you won,t take offence as none is intended Jean.

Comment by: Derek Callaghan on 18th September 2014 at 16:24

My rabbits come from the butchers myxomatosis free, still with their fur on...............Bootiful

Comment by: Jemmy on 19th September 2014 at 14:23

Hare today, pot tomorrow!
As for disease... domestic cats are risky animals - toxoplasmosis...

Psst, its definitely a hare.
