European Brown Hare. Taken near Cemlyn Bay on Anglesey, Wales. I can't recall having seen a wild hare before. This one appeared top be making a regular circuit of a field, so we took up position downwind, and below the skyline, and waited for him (her?) to come close.

Shame the space is behind him instead of him looking into it, but a very good capture with a nice expression on his face.

Thanks. That's a good point, and one I debated for a while. His 'face' is turned out of the frame, but his eye is looking in. I eventually chose this crop because it meant I didn't have to clone out a large plant immediately to his left (our right).

Nice shot!
I agree about the above comments regarding composition, but in the real world you can't always organize the model to behave appropriately. LOL.
I spend a lot of time photographing hares up here in Lancashire. One tip is that although they have more or less 360 vision, their blind spot, such as it is, is dead ahead. Many times I have stood on the road with a hare coming straight towards me oblivious to my presence and pass within a few feet.

I have just bought a 500mm f4. What a superb lens. The trouble is I get carried away and start taking photographs of things that are, realistically, much to far away. Even with the 1.4 extender the IQ is superb.

A super detailed capture and a well thought out capture.
