[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After visiting my home built hide a friend decided she would build one in a wood near her home and yesterday invited me to see it. It was certainly an improvement on mine. While there watching the birds, this Brown Hare came through and stopped just in front of the hide, obviously suspicious. I took a couple of pictures and it loped off.

Hi Peter. What a great picture of the Hare. good detail and colour .lovely big wiskers that show up well. very well done.. Nick

A lovely shot Peter.
Good to see some native British wildlife.
They are introduced here,and sadly considered pests.
There's something quite majestic about a big hare.
The shot is technically perfect too.
Very well done.

Hi Peter,
Excellent portrait of this hare!
I like the light there, it illuminates so homogeneous all the scene. Did it pretty good with the exposure.
You got a very clear and sharp details on the animal's fur.
I like the expression and the eye contact.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Peter,

Wooooah! An excellent shot of this beautiful Hare. The hid sure pays off. What a hansome chap. Lovely POV and sharpness and detail on the hair is superb. You have caught the light well, love his eyes and whiskers. Great composition Peter.

indeed a rare and precious glimpse of this hare, and a wonderful capture for an inpromptu shot.

Hi Peter,

Beautifully artistic shot of the hare. This looks like an illustration right out of Alice in Wonderland.


No nitpicking here...
A real gem, Peter!

Classic shot Peter, must introduce me to your friend!


Nice lighting and colours here, well done, you pretty much nailed it.

A great shot of the Hare, beautifully sharp and I love the cautious look in the eye. Well done Peter, yes a real comp contender.


Hello Peter,
This is lovely!
The attentive pose is very good, and the fur coat is captured with fine details...
I like the warm light, good focus on the hare!
Pablo -

It looks so shocked! Was it you!? LOL

A good interesting subject. this guy is huge.. we don't have big hares running around like this here. Good job on this guy. Technicalities are none to fault.
