Rape seed and Horny Hares :-)

Filed under: May — Hennie van Heerden @ 11:16 am

Not much time today. Only at the end of the afternoon I got to play around a little. Went down to the river IJssel near Deventer and found this beautiful Rapeseed Field. When I figured the animals apparently had a day off I headed back home, driving along a road that snails along the river through beautiful fields.

But there are always small surprises around every corner. I found two hares hiding in the tall grass in one of the meadows, pressing themselves hard to the ground, probably hoping I would drive on. But decided to wait around a bit. Pretty soon they had all forgotten about me and went on with their business, which was running around like crazy, fighting each other untill small fluffs of hair were swirling around everywhere. I don’t know the exact rules of the match, but apparently it was about who would end up on top, as they constantly jumped on and over each other. A really funny sight. Now I know where the dutch expression “Haasje over” (a children’s game; in english Leapfrog) comes from 🙂
