Half An Hour With The Bunnies
Two days ago I visited my dad's neighbors. I do that every time I'm here and every time I do a photo shoot with the bunnies and rabbits. I love them all as they are lovely creatures, and as you can't find bunnies and rabbits on every corner, I value the photos I take of them.
Dad's neighbor always has bunnies and rabbits, he's renewing his collection each year. He doesn't have a pig this year, so the number of bunnies is higher this year and they occupied the pig's place as well.
I don't know if you have ever tried to shoot bunnies, or not. I mean bunnies, a bunch of them in one place, not just one bunny, or rabbit. As I always say, kids and animals are the hardest thing to photograph as you can't tell them to stay put. I mean you can, but do they ever listen? Nope, never.
The only thing you can do is take as many photos as you can and hope some of them will be half decent. Then delete the rest. So I came home with 132 bunny and rabbit photos 😜. Now come with me to show you the cuties I had the pleasure to meet.
This was the first shot I took and despite of the lack of proper light, I can say it's half decent. If you see the rest of the photos, you're going to agree with me, trust me.
So look at the big black rabbit. That's the latest edition, joined the crowd last week. She's a pure-bred one. If you look carefully, it has a stamp in her ear, a code or something, that most likely is required by law.
The second photo, about these little cute bunnies. The majority of the bunnies are white, with black ear and black nose. It's not easy to see, but I suppose their tail is black as well. You see the one at the bottom, who moved during the photo.
My goal was to take a nice close up photo of either of them. Nice plans but reality in the field does hardly ever match the plans you make at home and it was not any different in this case either. The second I tried to adjust the camera to focus on one of them, they came so close to the camera that the focus became way off. Then when I started to move the camera a bit back from them, they got scared and moved away. Then I had to start all over again.
Some of them have red eyes 😍.
Her ears are cut as she moved, but it's still a half decent photo, compared to some I'm going to show you down below. Look at that white fur.
The smaller ones were so cute, but quite shy as well, so it was hard to capture them. They preferred to stay in the back, behind the others.
Look at this cutie pie. How can you resist such cuteness?
The other cutie pie.
Here's a photo to show you, not everything went smoothly. Sh*t happens.
As you can see, no matter where they turned, all eyes were on me.
And as I said, shit happens.
You never know how they react and over the years, I've seen all kind of reactions, but these were super friendly. I managed to pet a few, even touched one nose, which they don't like, but how can you resist? Their fur is so soft.
Look at this one 😂, curious one for sure.
The guy told me to take one home and he really meant it, and as nice the offer was, I said no. It would be cruelty to raise a bunny in an apartment and would hold me back from a lot of things.
Last, but not least, a big nose for you 😂.
Overall it was a nice experience and I'm looking forward to the next one. I visit them every time I visit my dad as it's a good dose of cuteness I can't miss.
Which is your favorite bunny? I hope you have one.
