Project 28: Cottontail Rabbit (Front View)

This young cottontail was one of three orphans raised by an acquaintance who is a wildlife rehabilitator. To photograph them, I put them into an empty fish tank with a cover and placed it outside. This way I could get down to their level for a great view without fear they would escape. They would be released into the wild later when they grew old enough to fend for themselves.
