    Hares today.....and a rabbit

    Following on from Pine Marten's thread about the stalk in the bluebell wood and seeing hares, I thought I'd post a few photos that I captured of Puss this morning.

    Next to deer, hares are my favourite mammals -there are so many superstitions about them and they often seem "other worldly". It doesn't seem to matter what direction they're facing in, in photos they always seem to be looking directly at the camera.











    Just to show that I share my favours more widely, here's a rabbit that also popped up from nowhere:

    O wad some Power the giftie gie us to see oursels as ithers see us!

    Aren't hares beautiful animals? It must be almost 40 years since I last shot one. The last one we ate was clipped by a car in front & I hated to see it going to waste .

    Bout the same for me, I couldn't believe it was a hare making that sound when hit.

    I love hares and will not shoot one, never have and never will do, they're a bit special you know , as are your photographs Dom.

    It always gives your heart a test when you almost step on one sitting tight, & last week was set up for foxing off the car roof, when two hares hopped to within three feet of the car,they started off at three hundred in the bino's.
