There's nothing wrong with it; it was hopping around and feeding just before this, and a few minutes later it got up and carried on hopping around and feeding. It may just have been basking in the sunshine, but I really don't know.

Basking bunny

It was basking - my pet rabbits used to do this. The first time one did it I was horrified - I thought its back legs had suddenly become paralysed! - they lay at such a weird angle.
