Rabbits, Hares and Pikas (Lagomorphs)
Common all over the Eastern half of North American, and quickly spreading not only across parts of the American West, but to other continents around the world - the humble eastern cottontail is an explosive breeder. This perfectly camouflaged adult was photographed in Bonita Springs, Florida within an eighth of a mile from where a family of bobcats lives among a tangle of old-growth palmetto palms.
