Year of the Gentlebun

I really am enjoying myself this holiday. I find that photography sessions are very therapeutic for the soul and one of the things I enjoy doing “bunny wise” is taking nice photographs of my rabbits. One will sure to notice that this weblog is nothing but photographs and I am sure our loyal readers can attest to that.

Ne-Yo happens to be one of my favorite artists and like the title of one of his albums, I am giving 2014 the theme – “Year of the Gentlebun”.

Here are a couple of photos taken today and hope all of you like them.

Backdrop Goreng Garang

Beyonce have a stage name or what she calls alter ego. Sacha Fierce? Like an average person, I do have a liking for beautiful things. If you have not already notice, I like capturing photographs of my rabbits and most of the time with interesting backdrops. After yesterday’s photography session, I went into a backdrop rampage.

If I have an alter ego for this rage for backdrop it would be “Backdrop Goreng Garang” or simply translated means “Fierce Backdrop Fryer” – ROFL. Sheer nonsense I know…

Let’s see what I have been frying up today. Poor little Miracle became my camwhore but he was such a good boy that knew what was required of him. Got the job done in a few minutes.

The Ladybug and Mushroom theme

The Bubble theme

The Meadow theme

The Random Pattern theme

Candid Shots

I went through the photo collections and found that I have missed out some shots that I like. Here’s a few photos of the bunnies to brighten up the blog.

This is what I call camouflage...

Happy Bunny Weekend!

The kits are really growing up cute and cuddly. There are a lot of differences with this litter as compared to previous litters when they were at the same age in terms of appearances and feel. Groomed a couple of bunnies this morning and just had to take some photos too. Here are a couple of photos to share. Happy weekend everyone!

Thunder

Fred

And also, the many faces of Clark…

Whatcha staring at, mate?

Uhuh?

Stay where you are!

There is a reason why Holland Lops have this “bulldoggish” look especially around the region of their faces. I have written something similar but I believe some of my readers are still unaware exactly what contributes to this “wide” look.

If you would like to evaluate or find the reason why your rabbit have a narrow look, take a front profile of it and do the following:

Draw a triangle through the tip of the eyes and join up at the tip of the nose

Realign the 2 diagonal lines

Short diagonal lines are indication that you have good width of head.

And NO, I did not ask you nor condone anyone discarding any rabbit with longer diagonal lines! So before you twist the intent of my post, just need to get that clarified to shut you up! SheeeEEeeeeesh!

Chestnuts Visit!

Today TLR is very honored to have a very special couple visiting and taking photographs of the rabbits. As I have mentioned many times before, friends are the most important part of this hobby and along the way, I must say that I do not have many friends in this hobby but those that I have the privilege to befriends with are very special to me. I really appreciate the CHESTNUTS dropping by Meadow Haven. I do hope they both enjoy their short stay here (wasn’t that short actually). Love the chat. If you like what you see, please visit their site and hire them at http://www.chestnutpictures.com/. I highly recommend them to everyone! Although I watermarked the photos with TLR, they are the rightful owner of these photos and due credit must be given to them.

Thank you Chestnuts and I am sure my dear readers will be very happy to see these beautiful photos!

Carmel:

I have been asked which is my favorite rabbits among all that I have. My heart is normally partitioned equally among all living things that I care for. But there is a little bit more for this wonderful doe. She’s AMAZING! Adesh and Shahfiq had fun capturing her on stills. Take a look at all the poses that she could come out with. Absolutely adorable!

_MG_0977

The best periscope captured on still thus far in my herd!

_MG_0972

Her all time favorite pose
