Two off the beaten track

At long last, I can contribute to this community! I recently took up a new gig, and the office just happens to be close to a long (thirteen miles, I believe) walking/cycling path. Most lunchtimes, I'll head around there, and quietly enjoy the sight of one or two, or even several, wild rabbits living out their lives, entirely independent of humans, although benefiting from being on and adjacent to some quiet farmland.

Most of today's shots were unremarkable, but this one caught my eye. ^_^ (The camera's a friend's Minolta A200 - certainly can take good photos, but I'm going to have to work out how to effectively focus on what I consider the star of the photo, given its notion tends more towards the nearer ground. I'm looking towards a Lumix TZ5, but I'm wondering if I might need to aim for something more heavyweight eventually, when funds permit, in order to gain the use of high power zoom lenses. Either that, or learn the secret lapine words for "come closer, I'm harmless" =:)

Oooh, very nice. I have another one in my backyard again this year, saw it out in the driveway one night, and out back the other day. So far it is more timid than last year's bunny. I'll have to keep an eye on the basement windows to make sure this one can't fall in.

As for the camera, you should be able to go into the settings and set it to focus on the very center. That's what I usually do. Though really, you should get an SLR and the new Sigma Lens of Doom.
