Before this trip I was rarely one to sit in one spot for hours and days at a time but it has really paid dividends out here. Last year when I tried to photograph these black-tailed jackrabbits, it was always by chance when out hiking in the preserve but, this time I’ve sat at the end of the garden (or back yard I guess) and looked out into the desert. I’ve seen so much more wildlife by using a combination of hiking and staying put. .
This jackrabbit kept sneaking up on me and then hiding behind bushes before I could get a shot of him. The thing with these guys compared to cotton tails is that they sit still for so much longer after moving so every time I missed the shot I knew I had to wait another 20 minutes or so for him to maybe move where I wanted him to. Each missed shot was a longer wait in the ever increasing heat of the sun but finally he hopped out into the perfect setting. He only stayed there for about 10 seconds as a dog walker managed to walk past just as the perfect moment was happening. So glad I got the shot in time 🙌🏻
Samuel!! This is Sam I met him working @jackrabbiteastsidenyc. Funny thing is he is from Puyallup! Sam is extremely smart and fast he is what you call a Super runner lol He gives the best neutral advice even if it means hurting my feelings or something I’m not trying to hear... he always gives me his honesty. He also gets free haircuts for life cause he used to let me practice fades on him when I was in Barber School. Thank you for coming so far to break bread with me!! 😘
This past Friday night, Saquon met legendary HOF running back Barry Sanders. He’s Saquon on meeting him and the advice that Sanders gave him: "Yeah, that was awesome to meet Barry," Barkley told NJ Advance Media following Friday night's 30-17 Giants preseason win over the Detroit Lions. "Growing up, I obviously didn't get to see play, he was one of my favorite players to ever see play even in highlights. "To finally be able to meet him, that's up there with the Jim Browns of the world. Meeting Jim Brown was such an honor for me, and it was really a blessing just to have a conversation with him... "Training," Barkley said, was the advice Sanders gave him. "Keep training, keep your speed, and take care of your body. I was just kind of in awe of just being in the same vicinity of Barry Sanders." Saunders said that he hopes Barkley has a great career and joked by saying “Just not against the Lions”. #SaquonSZN
First attempt at drawing in @vonnart style. Which went far better than I thought it would, even if my rabbit is a bit stockier.
Check out @vonnart if you haven't already, his work (the two rabbits facing each other) is amazing.
@humagel are the only gels I’ve tried that don’t taste like a shot of diabetes to the mouth .
100% all natural 😃
