Good new from the prestigious Asferico competition in Italy. My picture of two fighing hares received a highlight.
Normally a shy animal, the European hare changes its behavior in spring, when hares can be seen in daytime chasing one another; this appears to be competition between males to attain dominance. During this spring frenzy, hares can be seen “boxing”, one hare striking another with its paws. During a beautiful sunrise in a misty landscape I could witness this behavior quite close in front of me.
All results can be seen here:
