Photographer's Note

I shot this today for the Scav hunt "an animal in it's natural habitat". This is a wild hare that I found lieng completely flat on a lawn, I suppose it figured I wouldn't spot it, but since grass is green and hares are brown it did a poor job camuflaging itself. I helped him out by converting it to BnW, maybe hares see things like that ;o) When I sat down to post it I thought what can this teach TE memebers about Denmark, well we have wild hares, but I also want to tell you the story that gave this it's title.
Roadkill Story, I work as a post(wo)man and I have this co-worker, I guy who's worked for PostDenmark for more than 25 years. He once told me how when he goes about his route in his Postcar he chases hares and wild birds, at first just for fun, but then one day he hit a hare, borught it home, and ate it. I always thought he was joking untill I was in his car with him, trying to learn his route, and he spotted a hare, guess what - we went on a wild chase down a dusty road and he hit the animal, dead on impact and was very pleased with his own skills as a "hunter". I don't know what the poiunt of this story is, except we are all differnt from one another somehow, and my co-worker is surely one of a kind.

PP. This was pretty much how I took it, couldn't get any closer since I had to stay in my car and pretend I didn't see the hare. I cropped it a bit tighter on the left and upper side and converted it to BnW, then made the contrasts higher and framed it.
