I thought I’d welcome you all to my new blog with a picture of a cute bunny that I saw in my front yard this evening! I wasn’t even sure I’d get this shot because I thought the odds are against me: it’s dark outside, he’s far away, and he’s going to jump away once I move towards him. I prayed that he might still be there while I ran back inside the house and immediately grabbed the camera, the flash, and my telephoto lens. Sure enough, he didn’t move! I figured I had one shot before I scared him with the flash, which proved to be harder than I thought because it was so dark I really had trouble getting my camera to autofocus. My first shot was a little blurry because I accidentally focused on the grass instead of the bunny, but he was still there! So I tried again, and this time I got him in focus! I just gained a new appreciation for my 70-300 lens!
