Two nice shots for Autumn. That's one weird looking rabbit.
Cheers Dave (y)
Actually its a Caviidae more guinea pig than rabbit.
Rabbits on the other hand although rodent like, those and hares, are Lagomorphs the only 2 living mammals in this family.....

And here endeth today's lesson on taxonomy.
:D

Nice light in the autumn one and the back story helped make sense of things! lol

Yes
Artificial
It all sounds very complicated, I think I'll stick to full size plants :)
Good artificial light and I like the use of three's.

Autumn
It's a tough choice, but I'm going for the still life shot. It's a good use of backlight and textures. All that being said, the Patagonian Mara looks beautiful in the autumn sunlight.

Cheers Dom, its not all that complicated really.
Its like everything the more you know, the more you want to know, or try out (y)

Thanks again, Dom.
I't not my usual as you know, but while I had the set up for the trees I thought it was worth a shot (y)
( sorry :D )

Very autumnal arty farty shot.. some of my grape bunches have been totally stripped by wasps whereas others they have left intact. Fussy b*****s!
Big ahhh for the Mara.. very cute and I can see why its a favourite - great shot.

A bit of a catch-up here Chris.

Artificial. A nice idea to have the three specimens side by side and artificailly lit. Ticks all the boxes.
Autumn: I love the composition and seasonal colours of the leaves and fruits but that Mara is just terrific.

Such a catch up!! Oh deer.. you were in a rut? :LOL:

I give you a shoehorn on digital, otherwise a lovely collection of animal shots that seem to meet the brief(s).

Sharp is my favourite - you've captured a great snarl. Did she also let out one of those gut rumbling roars too? It always amazes me how they travel and if you're nearby everything seems to vibrate.

Go and sit in a corner and think about what you just did :p

Unfortunately not, she was just "having a word" with her sister :D

Thanks for stopping by Bee :)

Nice set of catchup shots and some lovely animals too. That's quite an unusual clock but the face is a bit small compare to the rest of the clock's mechanism.
Cheers Stan, its actually driving a much larger clock out of frame.
I guess the small one runs the same as the large one so they can adjust it ( the big one) if needs be?

Same for me. So little time and I like to peruse other parts of the forum as well. I don't want to just leave a cursory comment such as "nice tiger", but instead want to put a bit of effort in.

But nice tiger btw :D

Spare a thought for you friendly neighborhood Mod, who has 2 more forums than you ( plus a subsidiary forum or two ) to read.
And then a cursory glance around many others, just to make sure everyone is playing nice.
:D

Why not?

haha not a chance would I have time for that, especially for the more toxic elements. But kudos for it, definitely.

Nice catchup series with only a small amount of shoehorning - clearly standards are slipping ;)

Catch up
They all look pretty good to me and I wouldn't say any are a shoehorn. Still got to love the baby rhino.
