Brown Hare

There are quite a number of brown hares here in the Isle of Man. I usually see them in the distance after they've spotted me and they're running away. This guy although he'd seen me was not in a rush to run away. Maybe with living in the reserve he'd got used to seeing people who made no attempt to get close to him and didn't have dogs.

It was nice being relatively close to one and getting a couple of photos.

This was taken in the evening and is virtually sooc just minimal tweaking and conversion in Serif, it was also cropped a bit.
