pemanent fixed line: "bunny ears" follow through?

On a recent yos trip i've noticed that most permanently fixed lines (east ledges, heart, etc) are neatly set up without the use of biners or maillons.

the knot, at first glance, seemed to be a bunny, but it must be tied as a follow through knot, instead of "on a bight".

Now:
1-is my first glance analysis correct, or is it a different knot.
2-does anyone know an animation/pic series showing how to tie the bunny knot this way (of course i can tie it the standard way and then slowly untie it then reverse, but i'm lazy!)

I've always thought the Bunny Ears tied through the rings was pretty slick too.

i just took pics while untying the knot.

actually tying it this way is simpler than i thought and i should be able to remember it.

Isn't that link just to a normal bunny. I think the question is about how you tie it to rings without the lockers

Yes, it is. Please read some of the posts above yours.



I still haven't been able to find an animated one of the one going through the rings. Post one up if you find one. The one ghisino made above isn't to hard to follow if you look at it
