Looking for Alice

While we were in the Scottish Highlands last weekend we saw a magical animal.

I love watching Hares at anytime but combine the moment with one that turns white in winter and adapts itself so well to its environment then they becomes irresistible. The Mountain Hare evades its nemesis, the Golden Eagle, by sitting motionless and becoming a rock. We found this one in an undisturbed part of the mountains. The only thing that gave it away was the neat row of footprints leading to its hiding place.

      Thanks Joanna. Moutain Hares are one of my favourites so I was pleased to see this one as well as get a photo. More often than not all you get is a Hare’s behind disappearing at rapid speed across the mountainside.

    But it looks so cold. Or maybe I just feel cold after looking at the snow. lol
