Steorra - Brown Hare Leveret
It's not often you get to see a young brown hare leveret so I jumped at the chance when a local wildlife rescue centre contacted me to invite me to draw a couple of baby hares. They had been abandoned by their mother, something must have happened to her, and someone found them and brought them into the centre. It's not a good idea to touch them or to take them away from where you can see them as the mother only returns in the evening to feed them and they can seem to have been deserted by her, in this case the mother hare of the two I drew hadn't returned for a couple of days. It was really wonderful to see them up close and to be shown the special white 'star' each leveret has on top of it's head.
