Hops thinking

This is a closeup of my rabbit Hops (temporarily in Robyn's custody). This is one of his rare quiet moments when he's not tearing apart some carrots or a magazine.
I like this photo because the tone of the black and white and the strong but diffused light create a calm setting.
Also Hops looks like he's thinking about something important.
I used a Canon 20D, 50mm 1.4 lens at 2.8 aperature in AV for this shot.

Hi Ahamed, thanks for your comment at my blog http://anythingpet.blogspot.com/. I love your photos. Your rabbit is so cute. I went to Santa Clara before. I miss the cold climate there. Over here in Singapore is so warm. Do drop by again and visit my other blogs as well. Thanks.

Didn't you post one almost identical to this before? Not that I am complaining about seeing this cute bunny or anything... I like the photo in B&W also.

I think the flopped eared are coolest looking rabbins. Nice portrait.

I like the dreamlike feel and the black and white. The blurred cage and cut off paw are slightly distracting. Maybe a soft photo of hops being held or a more natural background (grasses) might work better.

Thanks for the comments.

Robyn, this is actually a different photo than the one in color (that one's in the october archives)

Ian, you get distracted easily. But seriously we don't have many photos of Hops in grass because he tends to run away.

I have a soft spot for all critters... let me know if hops needs any herbal remedies & I'll send them out.

Don't be fooled by his cuteness, he can be quite destructive when he wants to be.
But then he poses like this and all is forgotten.

Thanks for visiting my site, Ahamed. You left some freaking tough questions for me! It's already got my brain working, but not sure I can wrap my mind around your questions just yet. I'll certainly try.

I really like your work...a lot. I'll be coming back.

hiya Ahamed. Thanks so much for your question on my blog. I'll be answering them this weekend. Your rabbit looks beautiful. So soft. I've always wanted a rabbit, but with two dogs and two cats around... just wouldn't be good. :)
