Photo-a-Day (Monday, 15th September, 2014)
I'm glad you missed that lovely rabbit, big eyes and ears, perhaps it is waiting for Alice.
John, great pic, but i hope he wasn't shot.
That's a hare, not a rabbit.
What do you mean by "shot"? Was the photo shot, or was the rabbit shot? Was the rabbit left alive ?
Otherwise, good pic.
Did you roast it or make a stew, John!
Yeah they need shooting...!!!
But not just in aspull, they cause havoc to the crops everywhere
Why shoot a poor little thing like a rabbit.
Hopefully the only "shot" was of the photo and a great one taken.
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 :)
You got one at last John. Patience pays off. He has stalked them since early Spring, and that's worth the wait.
Peep...lovely photo John.
I thought you were vegetarian Ernest!
Love this picture, one of the best for a long time, well done John.
Good nature picture,I will go for rabbit
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!!!!
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!
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.
"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."
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.
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
Fantastic photo John...Patients is a virtue!
John is it a rabbit or a hare?.It deserves to be on a calendar.
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.
My rabbits come from the butchers myxomatosis free, still with their fur on...............Bootiful
Hare today, pot tomorrow!
As for disease... domestic cats are risky animals - toxoplasmosis...
Psst, its definitely a hare.
