Baby Cottontail Oct. 17, 2010

  It seems rather late in the year for baby cottontails, but rabbits do have that reputation for having children all the time.

The little fellow appeared in my backyard this morning.

  The cottontail is reasonably relaxed and enjoying a munch around.

  Occasionally, there is a cottontail near the various feed areas throughout the winter.

Photo note: I used the Pentax K20D with the SMC-DA 55-300mm lens today, on October 17, 2010, for these photos.
