Perhaps I’ve missed the boat on the concept of photographing rabbits, but I was just blown away by the fact that when I tried to find a few cute and cuddly pictures I instead came across images of rabbits placed in really absurd situations. Like cuddling with an alligator. Or with a hamster that looks like it’s terrified. Or chasing a dog. Or in a flower pot. Or with a penguin. Or in a basket … with a fox. I seriously could keep going.
But maybe it’s just me. Maybe everyone else can find it normal. Rabbits are pretty non-divisive creatures (they’re not like cats v. dogs where you feel like you have to pick a side) and they apparently get along with all sorts of animals. And, after reading Watership Down, I feel like there are a lot of rabbits out there just ready to push the boundaries and explore the great unknown, so perhaps showing rabbits outside of their comfort zones and interacting with creatures that are different illustrates the broad reach that rabbits can have. I think I’m reaching too hard.
Either way, rabbits make me smile. Whether it’s smiling at how absurd some of the pictures are, or just because these rabbits can just be so stinking cute and cuddly looking, they’re a good pick-me-up on a Monday afternoon.
Check out the absurd pictures in this post, then head back to Newscom to see more photos of rabbits.
I included this last one mostly because the story is just absolutely absurd. Who would smuggle a rabbit into a zoo?
