A mountain hare seems appears to be rolling around in laughter in the snow.
The 'grinning' hare was spotted by photographer Jess Jones who was visiting The Cairngorms mountain range in Scotland with a friend photographing the area's wildlife.
Jess, who is from Bosham in West Sussex, said: “We had never seen a hare rolling in the snow before so we were really thrilled!"
Jess described the moment of seeing this animal in its natural environment as being very special. "It’s so amazing to be within 20 feet of a usually shy creature and for that creature to be so comfortable in our presence.”
