This Arctic Hare was trying its hardest not to be seen against the snow. I was amazed how close we did get. This is one of our many wild inhabitants here in Alert, Nunavut Canada.

    Wow. Fantastic capture Ray. Love the little bits of black in his ears!

  • Thanks Ginger. The black tips give them away, unless they are moving.

    oh he’s SO beautiful!!!!!

  • They really are beautiful… when you can actually see them and get close. Usually they are off running so fast you just see a snowball running

    If he’d closed his eyes he might’ve got away with it :)

  • Thanks Steve. The only reason we usually see them, is when they are moving. I am sure that we have walked past hundreds that just sit there and watch us.
