I'm going to break my personal rules for POTW this week. I always select from the best of the bunch of PAs, HC and try to pick a shot that would look stunning on canvas, that is technically good, vibrant, sharp, and interesting (often unusual). Here I was gob smacked by the timing. My jaw is still dropped. I think this deserve the accolade for the incredible moment. It may not be razor sharp, but it's razor timing. Unless the rabbits are actors, a fraction of a second earlier we wouldn't have the expressions, a fraction later and we would have a pile up. Perfect response time to deliver us a moment in nature that we would not normally see.
20 Apr 2009 10:05AM
Excellent and perfect timing really a truly top shot.

Few images resonate this is one of the few. As has already been said but its worth repeating its that moment seconds later or earlier & you would have not got the impact that this has. I almost trod on a hare last year & promised to go back to see if I might see something like this. What time of year was this taken?
