Lepus europaeus cyprius (=Lepus cyprius) (European Hare, Brown Hare) [in Turk. Yabani Tavşan]

As you remembered, I’ve uploaded an adult one of this beauty, a while ago from Çığlıkara (Elmalı, Antalya). This time a baby from Cyprus that we encountered with it around the sunset time in Gönyeli (Nicosia) during our joint trip with Catherine (click here for more info on species). Unfortunetaly he has injured his one leg (I think he was faced a predator animal, such as snake or a hunter dog) and could not escaped from me. It was so innocent and I brought it to the animal care place of my big brother Salih for recovering. As I learnt from my brother now he is free in his natural envireonment!

Today I would like to dedicate this Cypriot baby to a very experienced TN member, Ulla Kruys (uleko)
who is also a great Cyprus admirer:). Hope you can like this Ulla!

TFL and Have a nice weekend!

Günaydın Dostum,
Dün geceden beri internette sorun vardı,düzelir düzelmez nete girdim ve bu sevimli yaratıkla karşılaştım.Hakikaten elimi uzatıp sevmek geliyor içimden:)Detaylar inalılmaz güzel,sanki çiçeği koklar gibi yapıp sana poz veriyor.Işık mükemmel vurmuş.ÇEvreyi katlettiğimiz için biraz gözü yaşlı gibi.
Selamlar,ellerine sağlık..

Hello Bayram,
How cute this lepus baby!! But it seems to have tears in the eyes..you did so well bringing it to Salih for recovering. And now, you wouldn't recognize it!
Such a fine shot with beautiful light shining on the innocent creature and the fine-colored flowers.
A great dedication to our friend Ulla.
Kind regards

Dear Bayram,
What a beautiful dedication and you have a good heart rescuing this gorgeous little Hare! Thank you so much!! Your capture is wonderful taken from a low POV and showing the little one sniffing the flowers! Excellent sharpness and beautiful light and colours.
Thanks again and have a nice weekend, Ulla

İyi akşamlar çok sevgili Bayram

This is cute indeed and vulnerable.

I handraised an Impala male on the farm and it's only playmates were I and a little hare baby, which looked just like this one.
Every late afternoon they played ''hide and seek'' - was lovely to watch.

One morning when I went outside with the bottle to feed the bock, he was standing there, staring at littlt bits of fur and body parts, which unfortunately turned out to be his playmate Hare'

It was quite heart breaking to bury these little bits and the impala watching...

I am glad your story has a more happy ending...

Thanks for showing this little ball of fur on TrekNature, a lovely dedication for Ulla

iyi geceler) sevgili arkadaşım Bayram, I wish you a great week-end
and hope Ferrari will win the F1 GP

Selam ve sevgiler...

Centaurea calcitrapa


Hola Bayram

Vaya no se ven muchos conejos por TN. Debe ser por temor a que los borren. Perfecta y muy bonita imagen, apatecería cogerlo en brazos, buen POV.

Un saludo de Antonio

Ayyy canim benim. ne kadar masum durmus, agliyor gibi..cok iyi yaptin abime goturmekle Bayram. Simdi hur dolasiyor zipliyor sayende..cok da guzel poz vermis sana.. hayvanlar senin temiz kalbini hissediyorlar bundan eminim..hepimizden selamlar canim kardesim.

Hello Bayram,
What a sweet little one and you have captured him superbly with your usual excellent camera work. I believe when one has compassion for all creatures that only good will come to them. Thus Bayram you shall be truly blessed.

Gorgeous capture here, Bayram and i very honorable dedication to our dear friend Ulla!
This is not something i would expect to see from you, but as it happens your photographic talents exceed that of macros and you've managed a gorgeous close-up here! I won't be surprised to see some nice landscapes from you one day :)
Excellent pose and POV here - with the little cute buddy appearing to "smell the flowers' :)
Wonderful work!

Bravo and TFS

Hello Bayram,
What a cute little guy you have posted for us. He looks a lot like our Cotton-tails in this early stage of his life. Wonderful detail showing us his fine facial features and beautiful colors of his soft coat.

Çok tatlı hocam. Çiçekleri koklarken güzel poz almışsınız. Ellerinize sağlık. Saygılarımla,

Hallo Bayram
It’s eating the purple flowers! Ha-ha only joking. There is quite a lot of lovely details in this image dedicated to Ulla. I just love the natural sunlight throwing lovely rays across the scenery just as the day is at its end. The fur of this little Hare is striking and looks so soft and cuddleble, further to that its big eyes, perfectly shaped snout and pretty paws is captured perfectly and is seen with great clarity. The inclusion of the plant with its flowers rounds of this adorable picture. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello MF Prof. Bayram,
very cute little rabbit. The pose it gives is quite special, shiny eye looking for you while enjoying the foos. The purple flower adds beauty and the details are well seen in good view.


Hello mon ami Bayram,

WOW!!!!!!!!! je l'aime, fantastique image joliment composée.
Le portrait est tout doux et ravissant.
Belle harmonie des couleurs.
Superbe moment et merci de partager.
Joyeuse journée.

Merhaba Bayram
i was an entire week without computer, and so many superb shots was posting this week it's very difficult to make a choice, but when i see this baby, i can't resist at this lovely face, the details on his fur, the light and the POV are superb
Great composition with the flowers in the FG
Have a good night

Hi Bayram,
This European brown hare is cute and cuddly. The capture is impressive with fine exposure and details. Love the focus and the framing with the flower in the frame. Excellent dedication and have a good time in the UK.
Thanks for sharing and greetings from Malaysia – Jusni

Hi Bayram
This little Hare has a cuteness factor of 10, at least in my books. I love your low view showing off such nice sharp detail. The setting sun brings out so many nice colours on the bunny and surrounding area. Good for you for helping the injured bunny, I hope his is safe and sound now. I've helped many injured and lost animals too including a baby moose.

Very nice composition, the baby-hare behind the Thyme.
Well done and best wishes.

this is just GREAT, greetings Ori

hello Bayram, wonderful photo subject and very good presentation!
TFS Nasos

Is that ever a cute shot Bayram. You don't get many shots with a hare sniffing flowers. Nice clear shot with detail in the fur. You've framed it well also. The colours are good and solid. A keeper! TFS Trevor

My dear friend,
We all love baby animals; even big toughies like you :-)

I wonder, why human babies are so ugly. Obviously, some thing wrong with evolution...
I add your baby to my theme "Juveniles".
Thanks for sharing.
Warm Greetings from the Tzaneen Dam in Limpopo, South Africa
