Black-tailed Hare - Sacramento County, California Leicaflex SL2, 280mm f/2.8 APO-Telyt-R, 1.4x APO-Extender-R modified to fit Leicaflex I've been developing my approach technique. These BTHA are tough critters!! I certainly haven't perfected the technique with this species but I've seen some progress. Typically I'll stay outside the animal's fight/flight distance until it realizes I'm not a threat, then slowly approach, watching for signs of nervousness. The fight/flight distance, and the time it takes for the animal to become comfortable with my presence varies greatly and the hare's distance is generally a lot more than the visibility in it's typical habitat. Comments are always welcome.
