I’m a fan of hares

069 rabbit f

This hare was far away in the fields last week and as I was trying to get a photo of it a man approached me and asked – quite suspiciously, I thought – what I was shooting.  It took him a bit to see the hare and we both came very close to violating physical distance rules because I wanted to let him look through my camera.  Of course, the hare who had been munching happily on the green stalks took its chance and disappeared.

I seem to have a knack to catch hares from the rear.

This one did its best to hide, keeping low in the grass.

But when it realised that the game was up, it upped and disappeared in the woods.

And the same story last year, when the grass was already higher.

    1. 😀 I’m thinking rather of the Long Patrol, the hares of Mossflower Abbey, bobbing and weaving when they on recon. I read all the Mossflower / Redwall Abbey books by Brian Jacques to my boys when they were little.

    1. Of course, it’s a hare. *hitmyselfonthehead* That’s exactly the point I was making to Jez with the Brian Jacques (Redwall series) reference. It’s hares!! I could kick myself. 🙂 thanks for pointing it out.
