The hillside had been lightly grazed, so the hare had less cover to hide in. Even so, if the evening light hadn't accentuated the hare's colour, I might not have seen it as I drove past. Clearly, it was enjoying the warmth, as several photographs show it with its eyes half closed. It seemed unperturbed, even when I got out of the car and crossed the road for a slightly closer photograph.
