Brown Hares

Its been a good week for photographing the brown hares in the Borders. The warm spring weather seams to have instilled a bit of life in the hares and they were getting quite active. I was lucky enough to get them very close in on a few occasions.  Going out most mornings in the early morning sunshine and managed to get some good pictures.

Here are a few of them.

I have just sent out my March newsletter highlighting the brown hare with a few tips on how to photograph them.
