Wellington


Snowmen are better than real people because 
they melt in summer and their noses taste better.


Thanks, Doug!

Is anyone thinking Waterloo?

Ijon Tichy the Nth said...

Hm..., totally. I even know of one bunneh that could not wait that long and beheaded a snowman and claimed it's nose!!!!! ;-)

What a bunderful photograph!

Not only does it feature a wonderful-looking rabbit, but technically, it is a triumph:

The composition is great; the bunny facing into the picture with some space left in front of him.

The snow adds to the effect and makes for a memorable picture; you can even see flakes falling through the air.

The bunny is in perfect focus, and the background is blurred off nicely, giving good "separation" between the subject (bunny) and the background.

That amount of background blur suggests the picture was taken with a camera with a decently-large sensor and a wide-aperture lens.

This is a great photo that any hoomin would be proud to have taken! (I wish I had!)

(Of course, none of it would have been possible without Wellington! So he's the real champion here!)

It looks as if Wellington is working on a nice size snow ball to throw.
I agree with Fleetie - what a beautiful picture!

Sounds like a contest that could go for another month or so ...

It does look like he's making a snowball to throw at us! Wonderful picture!

Auntie Jane (It is official!) said...

So discussing photography, contests, and snowballs is supposed to take our mind off our impending doom? Well, it does make you all look very brave, then again there is this little issue of disassociative disorders. Well, I guess they are actually in order under the circumstances. Okay, "Snowmen are better than real people because you get to make them like you want." Scorekeeper...Scorekeeper...

9.8 from the Canadian judge.

its a 10 from me

Auntie Jane (It is official!) said...

Oh, Speedy, everyone knows you are too, too nice. Thanks for bailing me out. Things can get tough when there is international judging. Did you see what that Canadian judge gave me? I don't guess you will do anything cheeky to a citizen from a Common Wealth country, but...no, it's okay...

bunny mummy said...

....but my vote is topped with maple syrup and a Double Double on the side.

Auntie Jane (It is official!) said...

Maple syrup! Excuse me, ma'am. Speedy and I were just discussing the excellence and fair mindedness of Canadian judges in general and you in particular. We don't know what a double double on the side is exactly, but all the possibilities were tantalizing.

Wellington is a Canadian rabbit....if that helps....and he loves a Starbucks latte with maple syrup drizzle
