Wow, Bunny, this is fantastic! Nice colors and just a fun image. Congratulations on your finalist!!! #9808440

Val Feldman level-classic 11/16/2011 6:07:27 PM

I love this, Bunny - such excellent dof, beautiful color and details...I've been shooting these fellows for years and have never been fortunate enough to catch one with it's "pouch" extended! Wonderfully captured! Huge congratulations on an excellent Finalist! #9810358

Bunny Snow level-classic 11/16/2011 7:46:04 PM

What a surprise! I would have never guessed that this would garner a finalist.

Thank you Michele and Val for your comments, and congratulations.

This was such an easy capture. I just waited with a fast enough shutter speed and shot. The hard part was being back far enough so I captured his tail, as well. Other images cropped the tail off, which I've learned is a no-no!

Thanks, again!

David M. Montero level-classic 11/18/2011 5:07:43 PM

The first is always special. A special congratulations on scoring gold Bunny! #9817542

Bunny Snow level-classic 11/18/2011 5:24:56 PM

Thank you for your comments and good wishes, Dave.

If I really worked hard on the image, I'd feel more like I deserved it. But, I didn't. It was easy. I think that if I reworked the image I could come up with a better rendition with my newly learned knowledge.

However, it still feels great even though I'm still trying to figure out why some images have the composition and some which I think do, don't.

Maybe next year I can come up with a beauty like you created with your October 2011 win. That one is so well deserved to be a gold. Congratulations to you!
