Wild Rabbit

I spotted this rabbit minding its own business on the slopes of the Rock of Gibraltar, it was there one moment and gone the next – I feel quite privileged to have managed to get this shot through the grass, without causing a disturbance.

A population of wild rabbits was reintroduced to Gibraltar a few years ago, and all reports show that they are going from strength to strength.  They were brought back in order to help increase the biodiversity of the Rock, and to maintain a more balanced natural ecosystem – something that is very important in such a busy, bustling tourist area of the world.
