#167 – Evil Bunny

Photo taken: June 24, 2012

One of my favorite things about animals are the chemical makeup of their eyes that allow them to glow brightly when a light hits them just right.  It’s much cooler than the “red eye” we humans tend to show off in flash pictures.  I can’t imagine I was using a flash while taking this daytime picture, but the bunny’s eye definitely has a glow to it… and that glow appeared in almost every one of the handful of pictures I took of him.  I chose to use this one for the countdown since his head is cocked just enough to make the eye glow (Which can be seen better if you click to enlarge the picture) seem somewhat sinister in nature.  What’s up doc, indeed.  I pity Elmer Fudd if he tries messing with this wascawy wabbit…

  1. I bet that is the easter bunny… he must be evil no louboutin shoes for the mama nor an ack ack gun for me…

    I zoomed in so far I could practically smell the sulphur, dragged from the flaming pits of bunny hell itself.
    Poor innocent yet maligned bunny.

    Bunnies are so cute, even with glowing eyes. We used to have a pet rabbit. He was pretty fun. Did you know that spider’s eyes glow, too? Pretty cool to see! 😉

    I think that glow is their secret power rays that can take us all down in seconds.. if they choose to go evil. XOXO – Bacon

  5. Gotta love the ‘poised to sprint’ pose to go along with those eery bunny eyes.

  6. Hmm…..I’m kind of wondering if the bun guy might be blind in that eye? It’s possible – it happens – and the “fog” could be a clue that’s the case rather than an evil glow. I kind of PREFER the evil glow theory though!

    • I checked out the “set” of photos I have of this bunny, and there are 8 of them. The eye glow only appears in the final six, however, in one of those the bunny’s turned the other way so his left eye glows too. It’s weird… this is one of the photos I discovered while I was going through my archive for this countdown that I obviously thought nothing of when I took it. But the set as a whole is kind of puzzling to me now…

  7. Our bobcat had eyes that looked like real lanterns and as far as we could see, actually emitted light. I’m told they “collect” light and then use it to hunt in darkness. It’s absolutely AMAZING to watch, though. Totally unreal.

    There is science behind this, you know, not superstition and not chemicals INSIDE the eye, but a different eye-background. While our eye-background is reddish (hence the red eyes) the eye-background of the eye of cats and other animals is light-reflecting.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapetum_lucidum
    “a layer of tissue in the eye of many vertebrates. Lying immediately behind the retina, it is a retroreflector. It reflects visible light back through the retina, increasing the light available to the photoreceptors (although slightly blurring the image). The tapetum lucidum contributes to the superior night vision of some animals. Many of these animals are nocturnal,”
