The Brown Hare by James Stevens

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

Took this shot the other evening with my Nikon D70 having borrowed a friends lens+converter for 20 minutes. Pretty pleased with the results although I did have to crawl through a marshy patch of thistles to get close enough!
I’m sure if you’ve ever tried to get close to a Hare you will understand how tricky this shot was- he is no pet rabbit thats for sure!
I’m a big fan of Hares and am quite blessed in the fact that so many live near my cottage in rural Kings Ripton, Cambridgeshire. I only had to walk 200 yards to find this old chap.

    Wild hares have much different ears and longer faces than our wild rabbits in the Western US. I know they’re two different species, but hadn’t had a chance to compare them till now. Love the pic, they’re delightful! Thanks.
