Moun­tain hare, Le­pus timidus Cairn­gorms Na­tional Park, High­lands

BBC Wildlife Magazine - - British Wildlife Photograph­y Awards 2018 - AN­DREW PARKIN­SON

These con­di­tions are prob­a­bly the most dra­matic and most ex­cit­ing that I have ever worked in. High winds were blow­ing huge amounts of snow across the plateau, and it was pure luck that I was able to find a fa­mil­iar hare. We en­dured the con­di­tions to­gether and, over time, I moved for­wards on my knees, keep­ing my cam­era out of the surg­ing spin­drift and pho­tograph­ing the hare with a wide-an­gle lens.
