Lovely shot of the Rabbit, good detail and DOF and you've captured a nice expression. But did you get your seasons muddled?

ha ha... i guess some people may believe this bunny is cute, personally I'm more interested in the taste of it all.

well done for supporting the project tigertimb : )

Best wishes to you
Steve

p.s...remember a rabbit isn't just for xmas; it also needs to fill the boxing day sandwiches.

well, looking at the mathmatics of it all...

The Santago Rare Leopard Project need to raise over 7000 before 31st December 2007...

therefore 10 x 700 votes = 7k

simple eh!

um, technically somebody else will be killing the turkey. I couldn't even smack a mackerel on the head this summer - it was staring at me so i put it back in the sea (seriously!).

I've never been there either, would definitely like to though. I'll try to find out how much has been raised and post it here...

In the mean time if we could all do our bit to get others to donate a tenner it'll make a real difference...

otherwise... 'BUNNY IN MY TUMMY'!

Pete (ephotozine staff) "I've just done a running total - 95 has been raised from 10 donations through the shop and 90 from nine donations through Paypal. The chance of 700 giving 10 is looking quite slim at the moment"

"I've put the date forward on the news story so it's on the home page and at the top of the list.
I don't want to get this into a forcing people to donate route. We do not usually support or assist charities as it leads to all sorts of complications. This was an exception to the rule because many members are closely connected with the project, and we have a few key members who thought we needed to do something and also the project has been an advertiser."

Hope that answers a few questions...looks like bunny is in serious danger!...
Thanks for everyones support so far
