While on a recent business trip to Lubbock TX, took my camera along to check out the local wildlife. It has been a few years since I’ve taken any photos in Lubbock so it was good to get back out there. Got some great tips on where to shoot and hit the ground running after work on my first day there and found several jackrabbits about 4 miles from my hotel.
This one took off accross the field away from me so I drove over to the other side and got him as he was running towards me in some decent light.

My favorite way to photograph jackrabbits is with back lighting. It’s all about the ears. Caught three of the jackrabbits hanging out right in front of me with the sun starting to set behind them. A perfect opportunity to get the sun coming through their ears.
