MAD AS A MARCH HARE<br />
<br />
Pictured: Two mad march hares do battle as they appear to be boxing each other in a field near Hitchin, Hertfordshire. <br />
<br />
The images were taken by Martin West, who spent hour observing the hares waiting for the perfect moment.  <br />
<br />
The 37 year old said “This behaviour is usually observed at the start of spring during mating season, with he females getting on their hind legs to box the males away”.<br />
<br />
“I’ve been trying to capture this for years and I’m over the moon to have finally seen it!” <br />
