When I first saw this rather large rabbit sitting under a bush I was convinced it must be a hare ... then I remembered that this is America and so it was probably just a rabbit afterall.

Added a few textured layers then tweaked and twiddled a bit to end up with this.

Many thanks for all the positive comments on my last uploads from the Joshua Tree National Park .... greatly appreciated! Also thanks once again for taking the time to look at this one.

Edit - The black-tailed jackrabbit (Lepus californicus), also known as the American desert hare, like other jackrabbits, the blacktail has distinctive long ears, and the long, powerful rear legs characteristic of hares. Reaching a length of about 2 feet (61 cm), and a weight from 3 to 6 pounds (1.4 to 2.7 kg), the black-tailed jackrabbit is the third largest North American hare ....

Thanks Keith, I think it was definitely a Jack Rabbit according to the book on local wildlife but it certainly looked more like a hare to me too Smile

Hi Gill,
It is indeed a hare, but our American cousins have called them by a different name
Hares and jackrabbits are leporids belonging to the genus Lepus

Either way, it is a fine detailed image of a beautiful creatureTongue

I'll not get involved with the Hare/Rabbit debate Gill, but you've produced a very nice image with the addition of the texture layers.
