HIGH­LAND HEATHER

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - Your Photos -

I went to Cairn­gorms Na­tional Park, Scot­land, for a week in au­tumn 2017 to catch the last dis­play of pur­ple heather. My aim was to pho­to­graph red squir­rels and moun­tain hares against this gor­geous back­drop. On my last day, I en­listed the help of ex­pert pho­tog­ra­pher, Mark Ham­blin. As we started our de­scent from the top of the moun­tain, we no­ticed the out­line of a hare on a nearby slope and started crawl­ing on our bel­lies very slowly to­wards it. Af­ter I’d taken this pic­ture, the lago­morph con­tin­ued to nib­ble on the flora. Clare Jones, Bris­tol, UK
