Mountain Hare giving me a wave

David and I spent a fantastic day in the hills with our good friends Andrew & Lyndsey Howard. The weather was spectacular for this time of year so we promised to make the most of it. I have struggled to approach the hares without them running a mile. I was so pleased to finally be able to approach them and watch them displaying natural behaviour. They are starting to lose their winter coats which is a good thing for them as there is no snow at all whatsoever in the hills to give them cover from predators.

 

This hare was stretching his back leg but I like to think he was giving me a wave. It makes me smile when I see it.
