Bunny Rabbit Pictures

There are thousands of free rabbit pictures on the web.

There are many online websites where you can go to find pictures of cute little bunnies.

Pictures of snuggly cuddly rabbits are hopping and bouncing all over the web and as spring and Easter draw near the need for computer generated images of the hare increase.

Furry soft, little noses twitching, and little powder puff tails a flickering, furry little creatures are curiously peeking out from computer screens all around the globe.

If for some reason the bunny images have not found their way into your home, and you are wondering where you can go to find these sometimes elusive animals, well I am here to point you in the right direction.


Were you looking for free public domain bunny pictures.

One of my favorite sites for animal pictures is the US Fish and Wildlife Digital Image Library. The US Fish and Wildlife branch has gathered together hundreds of public domain animal photographs and images.

This public domain library is open to the public and the use of these images is completely free of charge. They do ask that you provide a credit link back to their library but this is pretty much the customary thing to do. One should always give credit where credit is due.

The tale of Peter Rabbit is enchanting:

The World of Beatrix Potter: Collectible Peter Rabbit
The World of Beatrix Potter: Collectible Peter Rabbit

There is one rabbit who took the literary world by storm and that was Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit. Peter Rabbit was brought to life in Beatrix Potter's tale. It's 100 years of fantasy literature at it's best.

 

I just love the ears on this Easter bunny?

Well actually it is a Jack rabbit and this public domain bunny picture is also available at US Fish and Wildlife Digital Image Library.

Did you know?

Although hares and rabbits belong to similar classes of animals there is actually quite a difference between the two. Hares are generally much larger and have longer ears than a rabbit does.

Baby rabbits are born bald, sightless, and are physically very vulnerable for the first few days of their lives. Baby hares are born with a much earlier advantage in life. They are born covered in fur, and their eyes are able to see, as well they are ready to run as soon as they are born.

This is a cute little cottontail bunny.

Did you know...

The hare is famous for its abundant litters of young and as such is an ancient symbol of fertility often associated with spring and rebirth.

Eggs are also a symbol of fertility which is why it is believed these two symbols sometimes intertwine with one another.

This is a little tiny itty bitty bunny.

Easter Bunnies are adorable.

It was in ancient days where our modern day Easter bunny traditions actually originate. She is a hare and the tradition of a rabbit being associated with this holiday actually began long ago in religious ceremonies in Germany.

The hare would appear during Eastertide to reward good children with gifts of eggs and sweets. Because many Christians and Catholics fasted during Lent, eggs were consumed in abundance once this period ended, and thus the reasoning for this springtime gift of eggs.

The reason why a hare and eggs are Easter traditions.

Wikipedia Commons public domain rabbit pictures:

The Wikimedia Commons is an excellent resource for public domain pictures. Just be sure to check the copyright statement for the images at Wikimedia as not all pictures are in the public domain.

To narrow my search down I generally will type in "Rabbit public domain" or "bunny public domain" in the Wikimedia Commons search box. This helps to insure that I am more likely to pick up public domain images in my search. I then check the copyright notice to insure that it is a photograph which I am able to use, then I right click the picture, and save it to my computer.

      Bunnies are really cute to look at and play with but they can be a real menace at times.

      I found your lens on Lensroll.com and thought I'd stop by to see bunny pictures and I wasn't disappointed, they are very cute! I saw a bunny on the ski slopes the other day in the trees next to the run. It's really been a mild season this year, but we are expecting 16 to 20 inches of snow tonight and tomorrow. Thanks for sharing the great free public domain pictures of bunnies and rabbits.

      @aesta1: Aw you are so very lucky to have your own rabbits. Bunnies are so soft and cuddly I would love to own one. I guess they may not get along too well with a cat though and it is my first pick for a pet.
