hare today....


After a busy day....me working, one job paid, one voluntary, and The Pirate working with an electrician friend on sorting the electrics of the workshop garage...we moved the kickwheel to the garage ready for maintenance before use..and headed out on a relaxing drive.
Through the lanes over the hill from Straiton,past Knockgardener Farm and down to North Balloch to turn for Barr.Then on down through the Stinchar Valley where we saw this young hare sitting the other side of the hedge at Balligmorrie....
I reached for the camera....and he'd moved...luckily to near a field gate.
One photo, two....then a pheasant called and he was off and running.

We ended up in Girvan for a chip supper by the harbour!

Home on the bottom road up the Girvan Valley, where we were lucky to see another running hare..a beautiful sight,but we were relieved when he ran into a field!!

Ooh how exciting!Lovely photos :) Much more successful than my attempt this evening - we all stood and watched before we registered that we could take a photo, by then it was almost too late and I just got a tail shot!

How lovely - such beautiful creatures. I like the idea of Knockgardener Farm.

We have little rabbit that lives in the woods next to our cabin. I love seeing him/her most everyday. I suppose it's a good thing we don't have a garden ;-)

Great pictures, really capture the feeling of spotting a hare - it was probably getting on towards evening by the light. Lovely.
