'Wondering what others think about photos that show more environment, even enough environment that the subject is partially or mostly hidden.

I've always liked seeing more of the environment. Better story telling. (like this..as it's most likely that's how most people see them Peter).
Make your life spectacular!

I love wildlife portraits and I love wildlife in their natural environment just as much - sometimes more so, Peter! Illustrating their natural behaviour is the key and that often involves their use of camouflage and the screening provided by their chosen habitat. What could be more natural a sighting than your rabbit in the grass.

I have to agree with Carol and Dave. This is the perfect setting for this elusive rabbit, and the grasses are lovely, the way they bend at an angle to the subject. I'm understanding that native cottontails are disappearing in Vermont-glad to see this one.

Thank you Dave, Carol, & Cynthia!


edit - Cynthia, Eastern cottontails are still pretty common here, it's the New England cottontails that are quite rare. I have never even seen a New England cottontail.
