Mountain Hares January 2016

Working with Mark Hamblin yesterday in Invernesshire

I had an amazing day out photographing wild life in Invernesshire yesterday with Mark Hamblin,
The weather was kind to us, with virtually no wind until mid-afternoon. It remained cloudy almost all day but when we were watching a Mountain Hare (one of three sitters we came across), there was a brief break in the clouds which gave near perfect light, then as if by magic this beautiful animal popped up and posed for us for a couple of precious minutes. We also photographed Red Squirrels in the morning, but to see and photograph Mountain Hares in winter in the highlands was my main reason for this latest trip to Scotland. I had three days working in the Aberfoyle area on the way up so will post a landscape or two later.
