Photo Of The Month • Win A Platinum Membership
[post-views]

Mountain Hare, Scottish Highlands, UK
Nikon D610, Tamron 150-600mm, f/6.3, 1/800sec, ISO 320

In summer 2016 I spent a week at the Aigas Field Centre on a photography masterclass with Laurie Campbell. Not only was it a really inspiring week, but it was also my introduction to Mountain Hares. Previous to this I'd never thought it possible to get close to these wonderful animals. However, Laurie took us up into the mountains and before long I was sitting next to a hare as it groomed and nibbled on heather.

I fell in love with these beautiful creatures and on every trip to the Highlands since I spend as much time with them as possible. This photograph is one of a series of images. I spent about an hour sitting with this hare in March 2017 as it groomed, stretched, fed, snoozed and rolled in the snow. It's a real privilege to be accepted by a wild animal and it gave me the chance to capture a number of behaviours and just enjoy the experience.
