A big hello to everyone 🙂 It’s been 7 months since I last posted anything on my blog and I can see things have changed a lot on WP – I’m still getting my head around it! I hope everyone is well and I look forward to catching up with you all in time.
My first post for 2017 is of a juvenile rabbit enjoying the shelter of the shade on a very hot afternoon a few weeks ago. Click in for a larger view.
As some of you will know I have tried many attempts to photograph the hares I see at work – I find them beautiful but very elusive creatures and have probably hundreds of images of them running away! Yesterday I was a little luckier!….
Apologies, I couldn’t resist the title which is a line from one of my favourite films Withnail and I! Hares, in my experience, are difficult creatures to capture in an image – so fast that I generally see their tails flash before me, and then gone. These were a pair that I captured moving on my belly to get a little closer after work last week. One day… 🙂
A very hot day and a trip to a different zoo (yes, there does seem to be a bit of a theme here!!). One of the three that make up Zoos Victoria (the others being Melbourne and Healesville Sanctuary), this one has a predominantly African theme. Again, as with all of these zoos, emphasis is placed on raising awareness and fighting extinction.
