Not sure whether this is a rabbit or hare. Caught it while walking in North Wales. I spotted a couple running, sat down and waited for one to appear, when it did, it didn't stay long! Not sure if I had the 1.4 converter on.

Excelent picture off a running Hare, David. I think it's a Hare because off the big ears and long backlegs, I think also that you AND the Hare had some eye contact . Well Done...

More useless information

Eostre, the hare-headed Anglo-Saxon goddess of spring whose festival was celebrated in April, was believed to lay the egg of new life. As such, the hare was the original symbol of Easter until early Christians, wanting to get rid of all things pagan, replaced the hare with the rabbit.

Dirk. I was walking in North wales and I saw a few rabbits from a distance. I kept quiet and walked on, sitting down in the shade of a small bush. The terrain sand dunes scrub like with patches of open ground. I just waited till this little fella ran out. I though that I got a couple of shots off but only one. I waited around 20-30 minutes before he showed.

Bevellee. They are not so rare, I saw many of these fellas but this was my best shot.
