Pictures of the spring hare.

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...

Nice idea, but I have nothing worth sharing sadly! ;)

Unfortunately a little late.

The hare was jumping in a hole.

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

~ 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.
