Iberian Hare

Lepus granatensis

Description:

I saw this stunning hare after spotting 3 buzzards that were chasing it. But this guy got the best out of the buzzards and managed to flee and hide among the grass.

Fun fact! Hares are capable of reaching speeds of 45 mph, as they use their powerful hind legs to outrun predators. The saying "as mad as a March hare" is related to their courtship behavior, which often involves boxing, as unreceptive females fend off amorous males.
