Jackrabbit - The Great Hare
The Great Hare, 14 inches wide and 11 inches tall - Soft pastel on paper.
Jackrabbits are not rabbits, but hares. These long legged hares are amazing to encounter in the wild. Although fearful and fast, I've had experiences where the jackrabbit was more curious than anything else. One time while I was photographing some birds, a jackrabbit came over and sniffed my arm. And then just sat there while I took pictures of him/her. It was an interesting experience to witness curiosity in such an otherwise fearful animal... Ever since then, I've fallen in love with Jackrabbits.
