At Long Last...Mountain Hare!

After several failed attempts I'm overjoyed to finally photograph an English Mountain Hare.
The Peak District is the only place in England where these very elusive creatures inhabit and finding them has been no mean feat, I can tell you!
I couldn't believe my luck after trying a different location and spotting one within minutes of arrival.
Like buses, no sooner had I seen one, I saw another one and then another!

Now that I have found what looks to be a very good location, I hope to spend some time next winter photographing these Hares...I want to get a lot closer than I managed today also, although I must say I'm really chuffed just to get a few shots.
