Mountain Hare Portrait
Mountain Hare Portrait. Although Mountain hares are renowned for their shy nature, their latin name ‘Lepus Timidus’ actually translates to timid hare, the key is finding a confiding individual. After many years photographing the Peak District hares I have learnt where to find particularly obliging hares that allow an incredibly close approach. It’s always a pleasure spending a couple of hours just sitting with a hare, building trust and watching as they stretch and groom just a few feet away.
Mountain Hare Portrait – 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!
