    Where did you come from?

    Brown Hare with a look of surprise on its face! Managed to keep hidden from it as it approached, and got a couple of shots off. It looks like its been in a fight at some time, notice the damage to the ear.

    On a very bright sunrise, watched over 10 Hares cavort around this field, lots of chasing but no boxing

    I see you, this Hare used the deep furrows to run along unseen, although when he did run at right angles to the furrows it was an odd stride
