Now that the first migrants have begun arriving we tend to get out for a drive almost every night, looking to see who is new to the neighbourhood. Sunday, after seeing the first Canada Goose of the year, we continued on to First Bridge, where this Arctic Hare hunkered down in the lea of a boulder having a nap.
After snapping off a few photos without arousing his/her attention we moved on, making our way to Second Bridge. Now the road has not been maintained since the airport opened in January, so this was our first trip that far this year. Lack of a spare tire kept us from pressing on.
A couple of steps closer and it stood up on all fours, then slowly stretched. I had come in too close, but it still seemed rather unconcerned. (This last photo was not even at full zoom - taken at 220mm to fit it in the frame)
Then it lopped off over the rise.
