“There! Shoot it!” exclaimed Glover.
Award-winning wildlife photographer Burton Hinton brought his camera up. “Where?”
“Between the train cars!”
Burton’s reflexes had always served him well. He aimed his camera into the distance beyond the train cars. It made sense. Wildlife were always in the distance, trying hard not be seen. Burton always aimed there first. “I don’t see it!”
“It’s right there!”
Merely five-feet away, the last living Jackalope sat waiting on the train car coupling. The train started moving again and took him out of sight from the photographer. He groaned. He’d never prove his existence at this rate!
The Jackalope is a popular myth: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jackalope
