Curiosity

I was trekking in the Scottish Highlands with hopes of shooting Mountain Hares. It had been snowing since dawn so everything was white. To my surprise a Mountain Hare stuck his head out of his hiding hole not too far away from me. I was able to set up my tripod on the side of the mountain and get some close up shots of him. His curiosity allowed me to have some good time with him before he scampered off.
