ARCTIC HARE (LEPUS ARCTICUS)
CWF photo contest winner: Photographer Mathieu Dumond captures an Arctic hare near Ulurvik, Nunavut
Taken at Ulurvik, Nunavut, by photographer Mathieu Dumond: “With snow still on the ground in late May, this Arctic hare is taking a break from its search for nourishment in the scattered snow-free patches of ground. After a day keeping a distance, this one got used to me following and allowed me to move closer.” Like many images we use, this was entered in a Canadian Wildlife Federation photo contest.
