An image of a rabbit in flight is captured.
It’s very tough to get a decent one, even with a camera at the ready; you can’t predict when the race will begin or where it will go.
The cottontail is on the run after Ernie flushed him out from his hutch under a tangle of vines. And generally, the hares have the advantage: they are super quick out of the box.
Ernie has great reflexes but not enough speed to match them. However, one day last week HE got a head start and – for an instant – dog and rabbit were running maxed out, side by side.
GET EM ERN!
Just then the white puff ball made an abrupt right turn to safety through the wire fence. The opening image is exactly what the hare looked like when that Great Chase went down.
It has to have annoyed the escapee: DRAT!
There is always tomorrow.
