Happy St Valentine day everyone! 🙂 🙂
My target species during the quick dash was mountain hare…
When we arrived up there , they were no snow to be found….
On the second day , the white stuff finally arrived….
The key is to find a “wally” . That mean finding a hare that is not afraid of human.
We found three!
This picture was taken with a 24 mm lens…the hare is about two metres away…amazing
We even had a snow storm
Now that I have found that hares spot I cannot wait to go back….soon….
Just had a quick dash to Scotland. I love Scotland. Scotland is a beautiful country and the people are very nice too.
I was going there to photograph Mountain hare, but First, a Scottish Speciality.
Yes, it`s a coal tit. what I find incredible is the amount of Lichen and moss they have up there.
The air must be very clean for those to be so prolific. It`s very photogenic
Here is a Scottish speciality, the crested tit.
Beautiful little bird…..
The last week has been cold…very cold. I went a “my” hare paradise several time…
It is always amazing to go there. These pictures were taken yesterday.
This is the technique I use to photograph hares….
This one was about a metre away. Taken with a 24-105 mm
This little tyke came to investigate me… just one metre away…Amazing.
Yesterday, I was back in the woods with my window . I just love using a prop like that. I find it very photogenic.
Blue tit and great tit came strait away….
A first surprise…A great spotted woodpecker came and had a look…
Ten minutes after a magpie landed on one of the “Sparrowhawk” perch 🙂
