Lagomorph: The lagomorphs are the members of the taxonomic order Lagomorpha, of which there are two living families: the Leporidae(hares and rabbits) and the Ochotonidae (pikas). The name of the order is derived from the Ancient Greek lagos (λαγώς, “hare”) +morphē (μορφή, “form”). There are about eighty-seven species of lagomorph, including about twenty-nine species of pika, twenty-eight species of rabbit and cottontail, and thirty species of hare.
HAPPY HALLOWEEEEEEEEEEEN! Just before we rush off to give ourselves stomach aches with candy here’s a special Halloween photoshoot with Gloomth Girl Vanessa Walsh to share!
These photos also mark my first time shooting with my brand new Pentax dslr which I am beyond excited about. 🙂
We had lots of fun out in the golden autumn sunshine creating these photos! Even if it was a bit chilly. The bunny mask was a quick find at a costume shop near me, and it’s so perfectly creepy in the photos.
For Vanessa’s hair I wired two braids into tangly bunnyears. Her makeup I tried to echo the colors on the mask- pink, white, grey- with some clownish theatrical flair.
I also shot with my regular camera this day so we’ll have a whole second set of images to share as well! 🙂
Thanks again to Vanessa for modeling for me for this shoot!
Lots more photos on flickr!
