Ok, so maybe photographer Rick Derevan, who was actually there and saw the whole thing, might disagree with my interpretation of this photo. But come on, such grace, such choreography – who knew rabbits could cut the rug with such aplomb?
Alas, Rick describes the photo as such:
Bunny Fight 3: Brush Rabbits, Merced National Wildlife Refuge, California. I was watching these Brush Rabbits lounge around, when something set them off and they had what can only be described as a vicious fight. It didn't last long, neither seemed to be seriously injured, and peace returned, but it was fun to watch.
But hey, a girl can dream.
