MAD MARCH HARES

ANOTHER MORNING WITH THE HARES AND THIS TIME NO FOG. 
IT TOOK OVER AN HOUR TO GET MYSELF INTO POSITION, 
SLOWLY CRAWLING ACROSS THE FIELD.
 I KNEW THAT ARMY TRAINING WOULD COME IN HANDY.
AT ONE POINT THERE WERE FOURTEEN HARES, THE MALES CHASING 
THE FEMALES AND GETTING THEIR EARS BOXED.

TRURO AREA

I went out last week for the Hares (shot 1) but they were very elusive. When I went back this week to try again you could hardly see them (shots 2 & 3) because of the heavy fog.
