Still June here in Alaska, but June thread is already locked, so apology for violating the rules. Seems to be good year for the Snowshoe hares around here after they have been rarely seen for a few years.

It certainly is very detailed - which of the many Nikon 300mm f/4 lenses did you use?

Are the Snowshoe Hares a protected species in Alsaka?

Taken just down the road from Glastonbury Festival

Indeed more agreeable temperatures certainly for those with outdoor jobs.

Buddleia pink variety with foam like P. polymorpha backdrop.

The temperature here in Provence has not covered much, but today we saw this giant sky.
Here is hot compared to European temperatures, not Arizona ;)

The lens is the AFS 300 mm f/4 E PF VR if you want the full designation ;), used with VR in sports mode.
As other small game, there is hunting season for snowshoe hares in autumn though much of winter. The populations varies in natural cycles and are not threatened any way.

Thanks Řivind - I have my eye on this particular lens.  Still saving. :)

Good that it is just a natural variation in hare numbers that you are seeing.  We are losing too many of our species here in Australia.
