Daffy Duck disguises himself as an old mountain man, as a sheriff, as an executioner, and as Pocahontas to heckle Porky Pig, who has come to what he thought was a secluded woodland to paint pictures of the scenery.
Elmer Fudd, in suit, ascot, and bowler, reads "How to Photograph Wild Life," gets his camera kit - with tripod and flash, and heads into the countryside. He happens on tracks and soon comes upon a sleeping rabbit. He sets up his camera and that's when his troubles begin. The rabbit wakes up before Elmer can snap the picture, and while the rabbit is seemingly helpful, his various antics drive Elmer mad. Will there be a photo before the finish? Written by

"Then all you do is click the shutter, and presto! You have a fine picture of wildlife, suitable for framing." Golly, that sounds simple enough.

Elmer Fudd is reading "How To Photograph Wildlife" and he's ready. He has all the equipment, from tripod to flashbulbs. He heads out into the beautiful countryside. The first thing he sees are "wabbit twacks, er, rabbit tracks.
The rest of the cartoon is basically Fudd trying to photograph the rabbit (a forerunner of Bugs Bunny) but very little happens. I didn't anything funny in here....nothing. There were a few odd things, like th rabbit putting his elbow in Elmer's butt (really) but nothing humorous.
The only good aspect of this early Elmer Fudd cartoon is the artwork and colors. Bright, bold colors in the foreground and nice watercolor-like drawings in the back (reminiscent of "Bambi") were the only highlights of this animated short. However, it was obvious that the characters we all know - Fudd and Bugs Bunny - were in the early stages of development.
