A drove of hares

Terrible photos, I know, but I've never seen so many in one place. There were 7 altogether, running around like dafties, but I wasn't lucky enough to see any "boxing".

"Drove" of Hares

One of my favourite collective nouns. :)

Black ear tips are a give away too! Did you have to wait long to see them?

No -

Two or three were immediately visible in the wide open "prairies" around us. As we carried on walking (in the vain hope of getting close enough for a good shot), more and more joined the group, finally scattering in two different directions.

I've only ever seen fleeting glimpses. :)
