I photographed this little Cottontail Rabbit yesterday on Antelope Island State Park. Black-tailed Jackrabbits are far more common on the island so I was tickled to see this Cottontail near the hay barn.

The Cottontail was nibbling on fresh grass shoots that were emerging from the straw near the barn.
