Antelope Jackrabbit

“I took this photo on a hike one evening at the Douglas Spring Trail on Tucson’s eastside,” says photographer Leslie Leathers. “I’ve rarely seen them, but when I do they never pose for me — but this one did!” The male and female of the species do not look different from one another. Usually, they are active from twilight into the night, but will come out on cloudy days. Their diet consists of vegetation, such as cacti and mesquite leaves.
