Feeding Mountain Hare
Mountain hare feasting on the fresh grass shoots on a high moorland plateau in the Peak District National park. Here I used the low vegetation in front of me to frame the hare, contrasting the cold whites of the hare’s fur and the warm browns of the heather.
About The Mountain Hare:
The Mountain Hare is actually the UK’s only native hare. The much more commonly seen brown hares were in fact introduced to Britain by the Romans. Outside of the Scottish Highlands the Peak District is the only other place they’re found in the UK, so I feel extremely fortunate to be able to photograph these beautiful animals so close to home!
