So you think you had a bad day!

I saved this poor rabbit today by taking his photo. This Northern Harrier was harassing this poor jack rabbit, trying to get him to bolt so he could pounce on him - but then the raptor saw me and gave up his attack.

As soon as the Harrier gave him some space, the rabbit ran like rabbits can run and I'm sure he probably still is running.

Its' kind of cool to think that the rabbit had no comprehension of how close he was to becoming a meal and how his bacon was saved by me, a photographer who happened to be traveling down a remote dirt road at the exact moment he needed something to come by and save his life.

Serendipity or divine intervention?

I got a pretty cool photo and in return the rabbit got to live another day.
