European Brown hare, Lepus europaeus, single hare backlit on field, Warwickshire, September 2017. Olympus Em1 Mk2. 300mm f4 lens. 800 iso. 1/8000th at f7.1.
Photography has been slow of late as I have been in painter and decorater mode and now that I have time for a bit of photography finding subjects seems harder than ever. I have done hares in this field many times. I lie on the ground just short of a ridge in the middle of the field. I can either do them with the sun behind me or backlit. Either way I time it so I am there for about two hours just after sunrise or before sunset. Two hours is long enough to lie on your stomach keeping still.
