Hare, No. 1 Line

As I drove back down the No. 1 Line road I noticed a hare feeding on the far side of a small gully. I stopped the car, picked up the camera, and wound down the window. Fortunately, I had the telephoto zoom mounted, but I've still had to crop this substantially.

Notice the split ear. I could guess at the cause, but I'd probably be wrong.

Wild, beautiful, wary and solid, worthy of it's own small god.

EC, I agree about the pine cone. Can't say I had much choice, but I'm glad it was there!

RR, it definitely knew something was up. Might have been mostly the sound — the car not continuing down the road as expected — because it seemed unperturbed when I first stopped.

Zhoen — beautifully said. Thank you.
