In case you missed it

Another look out of the 'stock room' window saw me reaching for the binoculars to find out if the shapeless brown lump in the middle of the field was a pile of horse poo or the hare the earlier photos had revealed. It turned out to be the hare with its ears down and its back to me. I hastily set up the tripod by the back fence and hoped the evening sun would illuminate the animal when it was doing something interesting. A cloud passed in front of the sun almost immediately I was set up.

Patience paid off though. The hare got up, had a stretch and started eating. Then it posed as the sunlight returned briefly. Still a little far away, and the low light made for grainy shots, but I might have to take an early morning look for the hare some time.
