Judges Comment

“Super-rabbit”. A firm favourite and a difficult shot to master. The subject is well placed within the frame giving a real sense of speed but also an important view of this animal’s habitat. Well done for this amusing and rare pan shot.

Photographers Comment

This photo was taken in Co. Tipperary, in southern Ireland where I live. I was actually out photographing birds when I noticed some movement in the field in front of me and quickly trained my camera on the rabbit as he ran across my field of view. I panned and took 3 shots. This was the best of them as it shows him in full flight. It was taken with a Canon 7D with a 70-200mm lens. Post processed in Lightroom. My name is John Crowley and I'm delighted to receive a Mark of Excellence.
