How close can I draw near this rabbit and take its picture without making it bolt?

Not close enough for a close up but close enough to see his nose wiggle. I am not giving myself credit for being a good naturalist because the rabbit did bolt the next step closer I drew. I also feel I had evoked the rabbit's "freeze gopher" reflex. So I had terrified the rabbit by my presence, however benign. Maybe telephoto lens could change this disadvantage of shooting with an android phone? A single rabbit has greeted me, at least by being present, almost every spring and summer night I have arrived home, five seasons running. It can't be the same rabbit, can it? In late summer and early fall, come the gob smacker sized spiders.
