“The March Hare will be much the most interesting,
and perhaps as this is May it won’t be raving mad
– at least not so mad as it was in March.”
thus spoke Alice, in Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Last year he was a fluffy bundle. Now he has grown into young Master Hare.
In between nibbling and snoozing, he takes the odd stretch. Is he dreaming of Spring? Can we just get on with it now please, before I fall asleep again!!!
(The tag Mad as a March Hare refers to Spring mating behaviour when females sometimes engage in boxing matches with undesirable males.)
Oh these are priceless especially the yawn or laugh…seems the hare is laughing at our lack of spring here…..
I know Donna…..what a funny face!

Oh what wonderful poses you've caught him in.
and I didn't know the females boxed 🙂
O they do but it's so hard to find it and photograph it!! Thank you Kerri!
These hare pictures are wonderful, you were at the right moment to capture the hare when he had just awakened. And the last picture,as if he is laughing at you, hahaha.
I know Janneke, that slightly creepy yawning grin!!!
Incredible March Hare, awakening for spring time. I am in love with all you hare pictures!
Thank you Amelie! I mentioned your amazing photography as a link in my new section of tips for contemplative photography practice!

It is lovely to see these different positions and that yawn just made me giggle. Philippa x
