Bet you can't see me ......

By teocali
.......a Brown Hare (Lepus europaeus), keeping very still and barely discernible from the dozens of molehills. Taken handheld, at a distance of 54.9m, out of the open back window of a Landrover, bumping its way around the Glenlivet Estate in the Cairngorms National Park. Was hoping for sightings of Mountain Hare in winter coat, but only distant record shots achieved this time Sad

My thanks to you all for your great response to yesterdays Red Grouse Flight - it received more attention than I ever expected and a special thank you to Ron (Maiwand) for his User Award - all very much appreciated as always Smile

You must have a rock steady hand to capture such a crisp shot at 700mm., Sylvia.

You are too modest Sylvia, I would say your undoubted skills is a lot to do with the image, helped by great gear admittedly.

Beautifully captured with focus on the hare.
Had a presentation at our club last night by FERGUS GILL who is a 20 year winning wildlife photographer.
If you time look at his work.
He explained how elusive hares are so well done getting your image.

A terrific opportunisic capture Syliva, most impressive considering it was taken from inside a moving vehicle! You must have the eyes of a hawk to spot her from such a distance!
