Before the world shut down March began as a fabulous month in the Scottish Highlands – amazing mountain hare experiences & happy clients, red squirrels and red deer.
Another stormy month in the Scottish Highlands, but I made the most of it with trips to the mountain hares and some lovely red squirrels in the snow.
The weather may have been challenging in the Scottish Highlands in January, but I made the most of it with regular visits to the wonderful mountain hares in snow, rain, wind and sunshine!
Spending time with the mountain hares in the crazy 2019 windy, mild winter weather.
The weather may have been wet and windy, but it was still a joy to spend a few days in the company of the mountain hares this October.
A weekend of sunshine in the company of my favourite animal, the mountain hare.
Readers of this blog or followers on social media will be aware how much I love spending quality time with mountain hares. The setting is stunning (especially this year when coated in a thick blanket of snow) and it’s wonderful just to sit with a hare as time passes by – even when the hare does little more than twitch and do a half-hearted groom in 3 hours whilst we survive a blizzard and biting cold winds together!
My aspiration when it comes to wildlife photography is to stick to a few species and spend as much time as is possible watching them – not only is this a joy to do but hopefully it will lead to more interesting images.
Little did I know as I trudged up a mountain path in the Scottish Highlands last July that I’d be meeting an animal that I would fall in love with.
