Mountain Hares

Today I went up onto the high moors to try and photograph Mountain Hares Lepus timidus. They were fairly easy to spot in their winter coats against the non-snowy moors. However getting close to them is a bit tricky, I managed to get really close to one, then the next difficult bit is getting the camera up high enough without spooking them, from the rear end photos you can see I spooked a few. The weather turned bad very quickly so I scarpered back down.
