There have been hares (Lepus europaeus) in the garden for some time, but they have proved very elusive and, until today, I have been unable to get a photo.
Just before it got dark this evening I saw this little chap (chapess?) nibbling away on the lawn. I managed to sneak up on it and take this photo, although I did not really get close enough.
What a magnificent creature. It is larger and lighter coloured than a rabbit with quite distinct long ears.
I hope it will make itself at home so that I can get a better chance of a photo.
