Okay, so it's not a hare and it's not a rabbit, but it's pretty close to an Easter bunny lookalike. Let's see you spring hare photos...

Unfortunately a little late.
The hare was jumping in a hole.

Safaris and Ketchup are similar, sometimes you shake the bottle of Ketchup and nothing comes out, you shake and shake and shake and all of a sudden everything pops out.
So donīt stop shaking the bottle, thereīs a lot inside.

This spring hare was dashing back to its hole and I only had time to take one picture.

I saw a lot of Spring Hares whilst in Zim but no photos: have you got any pics to share?

How about refreshing this topic with some new spring hare photos? What have you got on your hard drives to upload and share with us?

Porini Lion Night Drive Spring Hare.jpg

 

Porini Lion Night Drive Spring Hare

 

Photographed on 5 February, 2016 at 9:44 pm in Olare Motorogi Conservancy, Masai Mara, Kenya, with an EOS 1D X camera and a Zeiss Apo-Sonnar T* 135mm f/2 ZE telephoto lens.

 

ISO 25,600, f/2, 1/1000 sec., 135mm focal length, manual focus, handheld Manual exposure.

 

*******************************************************************************************************

 

~ As I'd never been on a night game drive before, after dinner we went out on a star-lit evening. The amount of game spotted exceeded my expectations, including a genet and an aardwolf.
 
It never had occurred to me that I'd ever see a spring hare, so I was startled when two jumped past us. As I almost never see rare species, it was a pleasure to photograph this spring hare.
