A grumpy mountain hare appears to frown at the camera whilst trying to shelter from the wind. Photographer Karen Miller captured the interaction with the hare on a plateau at the top of a mountain in the Scottish Highlands. <br />
<br />
Karen from Glasgow said “The hare was hunkering down, trying to shelter from the wind, whilst myself and a friend were sat nearby suffering the full brunt of the conditions.” <br />
<br />
“We spent over an hour edging closer to the hare. During the time we spent with him the mountain hare did very little other than glare at us!”<br />
<br />
On why he appears to be frowning, Karen said “This one was just trying to stay warm by remaining as compact as possible, as their summer coat isn't as warm as the white pelage they have in winter”<br />
