Watch rare footage of Mountain Hares in Scotland go toe to toe as they battle it out for a mate.
Keen photographer, and full time whisky distillery worker, Alister Kemp, 50, from Evanton, Scotland captured the boxing Hares just north of the Cairngorm National Park.
This is a hard-to-get glimpse Mountain Hares are Boxing during mating season in competition for a mate.
Alister said: “As always, I feel privileged to spend time in presence of these truly amazing animals in their natural environment.
“The day I took these photos was extra special as they seemed totally oblivious to me being there. At times running past me within a few meters.”
