There was one clear view through the stems of surrounding shrubbery of this Scrub Hare remaining motionless in dappled shade, apparently hoping not to be seen, one foreleg extended rather elegantly forward.

Usually Scrub Hares disappear into the vegetation if a vehicle stops nearby, but this one and a slightly smaller and more nervous companion remained where they were even as we drove off after I took this photo.

I found this image in a collection of photos taken at the Addo Elephant National Park, which is situated in the Eastern Cape not far from Port Elizabeth.
