In this video I provide some tips on how to approach and photograph hares, although this advice is relevant for all wildlife photography. I discuss how to get near to hares in order to photograph them, and thus get close-up detailed images of these fantastic creatures. And yes, it does include a clip of me looking gorgeous in camouflage!
I have been photographing European brown hares in my local area of Oxfordshire and hope to put together several videos on different aspects of hare photography. Although, future hare videos will be stalled by our upcoming trip to New Zealand where my wildlife photography efforts will be directed towards the fantastic range of bird fauna there (there are hares in New Zealand but I have promised not to go in search of them there!).
