Watership Down


Does the title give you a clue what to look for in the photo?


Watership Down is a classic heroic fantasy novel by English author Richard Adams, about a small group of rabbits - in their natural environment, but anthropomorphised, possessing their own culture, language, proverbs, poetry, and mythology.


There were six or seven of them grazing in this corner of the cemetery when I happend to be passing by in the early evening. They are very much on guard, all the time… When they hear you approach, they first freeze and sit still, hoping to be invisible. And then if you take one more step - they’re off to hide in the bushes.


For Straight Out of the Camera Sunday


  1. i did not know the title or what it meant, but i saw the rabbit in the first one and thought it might have to do with that. i really like the second photo, it is beautiful, the greenery around the gravestone and the rabbits go so well together. i am wondering if they were deciding what to eat first great find. i love rabbits and babies are really cute. my son found one that sat in the palm of his hand,

  2. They're very cute :) Nice pictures.
    Have a great Sunday!


  3. Have never read the book though I have heard of it. Love rabbits, we have none, too swampy here I guess.

  4. What lovely pictures. I remember the book well - your photos do indeed capture the feeling of it.

  5. What sweet photos. I remember the book -- read it aloud to my daughter when she was young. Thanks for sharing.

  6. I did not know it's about a rabbit. Love how you capture the bunnies with the story too. Thanks for sharing.


  7. I loved that book, read it to all four of my children and still didn't tire of it. Also love the story of how the author told the tale to his children and how it evolved over a period of time. Enjoyed the movie. Somehow the second shot and the imagined discussion about the gravestone appeals to me.

  8. Cemeteries have a special place in my heart, particularly the ones that are a bit overgrown and home to squirrels, rabbits and all sorts of birds.

  9. I know that most people who read Watership Down loved it. I remember it as one of the most black, dark and depressing books I've ever read. Strange.
