Cairngorms National Park, Scotland


I was sitting with this mountain hare as it enjoyed it’s slumber.  Although the sun was shining it was deceptively cold.  As the wind blew the spin drift towards the hare the light caught it due to the low angle of the winter sun.  This makes the image.  The hare with it’s thick winter coat did not feel the cold and was not at all bother enough to move and take shelter.
