Påskhare by huvesaker

Påskhare

Looked outside this morning as we were getting ready for breakfast and we saw this lovely hare.
The children said it was the "Påskhare" who had come to check out the garden ready to hide some eggs...
The rest of the world has the Easter Bunny (which is a rabbit) and we have a Hare.

Carrot, our bunny was fascinated by the visit from the hare and both children (and me) thought it cool as well...Wonderful. He was in the garden for about 15 mins hopping around, giving our bunny a kiss on the nose and enjoying the peace and quiet. Not very often we see them so near the house. Can you tell I am excited about seeing this and by getting a shot of him...LOL
Lovely shot. Love the glimmers.

March 28th, 2013  
Great capture, I have seen these where I live, but not for many years now.

I only ever see them in the spring when the weather gets a bit better but the tracks are always here in the snow all winter @richardcreese
March 28th, 2013  
Fab shot - love the sparkly bits in the snow, too!
March 28th, 2013  
This is wonderful! Love the snow bokeh!

@gillg my children call them snow diamonds. every winter we are VERY rich...LOL

@eevarita Thank you :-)
March 28th, 2013  
Oooooo... fanTAStic capture!!!! Better watch him hanging around your bunny rabbits.. he might start getting some romantic notions. ;-) hehe
March 28th, 2013  
A wonderful shot - I love it when I spot a hare, but I've never got such a good photo of one and I love the sparkly snow background!
March 28th, 2013  
@gailmmeek Carrot is safe...I hope...if not, we will have floppy eared rabbits with HUGE feet...LOL

@roachling thank you, I was VERY lucky to get this shot, probable won't get another good hare shot for years...LOL
March 28th, 2013  
@huvesaker oh...phew that's good. :)
March 28th, 2013  
Amazing shot and great to get such a close, clear shot. Love the shimmering snow as well.
March 28th, 2013  
@suesmith it isn't until you see them really close that you realise just how big they are
March 28th, 2013  
Yes, he does look a big brute. Amazing to see this at Easter time!
March 28th, 2013  
This is FAV - he's so sharp, and the snow so sparkly!

@huvesaker I don' think I ever have a hope of that. I haven't added any shots for two days. So so frantically busy at work, just one more week to go I'm just exhausted, but I will catch up over the Easter weekend!
