  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!

  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!

  Thanks, Mitch. Big surprise here. Digging deep into my old gallery looking for an entry, and to receive a finalist with this one, definitely is a surprise!

Thank you for your expression of success, and taking the time to comment on my image.

  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!

  Thank you, Amanda. This was basically a "snapshot," which turned out well. I wish that those which I diligently worked hard with in Photoshop, would become a winner like this!
