[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I promised a year ago that I would post a hare for Anna-Lu, well, finally I captured one.

In view is a Snowshoe Hare in transition from winter to spring/summer coat. White in the winter and brown in the spring/summer. Captured in it's natural habitat with dead grass and trees/bushes for cover incase of potential threats. You can read more about the Snowshoe Hare

Thanks for looking.

Hi Mike
I am sure Anna-Lu will be chuffed with this hare. It is a great capture in a typical hare pose ready to skedaddle at a moments notice.
The composition is very nice showing the animal in its natural environment and the colours makes it blend perfectly with its surroundings. The DOF is spot-on and the details are nice and sharp. The dark BG enhances the hare very well and the exposure was handled pretty well considering the back-light condition.
Very well done and TFS.

Hi Mike, excellent capture, great colors and details, excellent POV, TFS Kyle
