Standing at my favourite spot in the garden next to the compost heap this evening, I spotted a hare lying in a form in the field behind our house. I have seen hares in the fields near the house before, but only occasionally. They tend to hang out further up the hill, on the edge of the moors and on the local golf course.

I sneaked back into the house to get my camera and managed to get this photo before the hare lived up to its name and hared away.

A hare this evening

What always surprises me about hares is that they don't hop like rabbits; they quite definitely run. And damn fast as well!
