Yesterday while on Antelope Island there were several Black-tailed Jackrabbits near the Bridger Bay campground that stayed still long enough to photograph them. Usually the jackrabbits scurry away before I can even get my lens aimed their way but this one sat out in the open for a while. I love to photograph them because of their shape, their long ears and I like the color of their eyes which reminds me of caramel or butterscotch.
This Black-tailed Jackrabbit was near the first one and as I photographed it I realized that its eye color was odd because they are much paler and has a slight greenish hue to them. It is my first time seeing a Black-tailed Jackrabbit with such pale eyes. I don’t know if this is normal or not but I found the eye color difference fascinating.
Has anyone else seen such pale colored eyes on a Black-tailed Jackrabbit?
Life is good.
