Mountain Hares - Cairngorms, Scotland. (Summer 2018 - Winter 2019)
Mountain Hares are one of Scotland most iconic animals. They are incredible subjects to photograph giving you a whole range of facial expressions and oftentimes action to record. But how do I get close to them you may ask. After all they certainly live up to their name Lepus timidus!
I offer guiding days in the Cairngorms so you can get within reasonable distance of these wonderful creatures. During Winter we can get the hares camoflaged in the snow, and in Summer when their fur changes colour we can photograph them amidst the heather.
Let me show you the secrets of field craft enabling you to come away with some memorable images!
