Spring Mountain Hare
A patchy Mountain Hare (Lepus timidus) sheltering in its form. Peak District National Park. I like to photograph the hares right after the snow melt while they’re still in their white winter coats before they change back to summer browns and disappear into the landscape once again.
About The Mountain Hare:
The Mountain Hare is actually the UK’s only native hare. Brown Hares are not actually native to Britain but were in fact introduced by the Romans. The Peak District is actually the only place in the UK they’re found outside of the Scottish Highlands, so I feel extremely fortunate to be able to photograph these beautiful animals so close to home!
