Hoping to catch the mountain hares still in their winter coasts, I travelled to the Cairngorms in the hope of getting some pictures of them. On my fist night I was presented with the northern lights, which were amazing to say the least, so I was off to a good start.
The mountain hare were fairly challenging (to get what I wanted anyway) and many of them had already started to change into their summer coats rendering them mottled white and brown. Occasionally some are quite accommodating and you can get quite close. The idea was to photograph the hares on all snow or no snow, preferably in their environment in the simplest way possible.
All in all It was good trip and I hope to return next year.
