If you find Brown Hares, you might not need to travel a lot far from home, they can be quite locally common still in places and you buy, ask around in the pub door with a lot of friendly farmer and get some leads, I would look at props gently in the lighting ground like this in the light winter, check side lines, winter stubbles and prop some low winter wheat or barley, and I’d set out early morning and drive these lanes until I was able to find some ring. So to do this, I’m going to be trying to shoot from that vehicle using the car as the height; I’ll be using my longest telephoto lens, probably when we’re getting terribly close to these animals out in the open, so 400-500mm props to the teleconverter, I’ll be using a beanbag to rest the lens on from the car window. I prefer to use a beanbag because it gives great solid support for the lens, it’s quick and easy and it’s cheap. You don’t really need fancy brackets where you spend 70-80 Pounds on, this is, just does the job. Brown Hares can be quite hard to spot, chances are they’ve seen you coming before you’ve seen them, and they’ll be lying down prone position, if flat and it’s just looking like a cloth of earth. If you manage to find them lying down, park up and give way beside them and give them time to relax and get used to it. But we didn’t get any botching hares for the day, but today’s at least got a few shots of this pair of Nestling and so it’s welcome to be on the show some behavioral interaction. On a previous occasion I manage to photograph this leverage as it came to a field edge and its nicely cross lit which makes it about bit more attractive, I’ve got interested to see in the photograph that there’s some skulls on the side of the hare where it seems to have an encounter in the past through that, some predator Fawkes or a dog, maybe, but if it’s veering and going out again and again you will eventually get a few full frame shots, but if you like the, where the light shines through the whiskers on this one. On this particular day I’ve been watching the hare in its form for about ¾ of an hour more before it eventually started to wake up and stretch and groom a bit and then it just walks straight towards me in the car and it took a bit posture which I particularly like, looks like its about to start to race; brown hares is another one of my subjects you can divert your whole life to and some people do have yet to get any good photographs of running along or botching hares but we’ll keep trying.
