The hare is closely related to the rabbit. People sometimes confuse the two animals, but there are several ways to tell them apart, the most reliable being that hares are larger and have longer legs.
Hares often live out in the open, and are far more athletic than rabbits; rabbits can sprint very fast (useful for a dash back to a nearby burrow) but tire of this quickly, whilst the stronger-hearted hare can run at high speeds for long distances.
A familiar hare is the brown hare, Lepus europaeus, which has sandy to rusty fur; long, black-tipped ears; and glassy-looking yellow eyes. Other popular species of hare include the arctic hare, the mountain hare and the snowshoe hare.
Jackrabbits, despite their name, are also hares.

Notes Justapoz magazine:
Serbian artist, Nebojsa Zdravkovic is a master of appropriating light with a brilliant use of color via a classic impressionistic style. His works convey a delightful but moody sense of realism with a curious innocent sensuality which is at the same time not overly sexualized.
Born in Belgrade in 1959, he trained in the best art schools and graduated with a Masters Degree. He is now a member of the Association of Serbian Fine Artists. He was granted a scholarship by the Spanish government for post-graduate studies in Madrid. He has won many prizes for his work in his own country and abroad.
His work has been exhibited in many group shows, and he has had several solo exhibitions in London, Paris, Belgrade, Athens and Cyprus.

Face of joy covering all your fears
Summer boy, give me your tears
Hands of gold playing a prayer
Heart and soul praying a song
Clowns can smile and gardeners grow their flowers
Summer boy, give me your hours
Give me your glance like the wing of a dove
Summer boy, give me your love
Suns can set and willows can weep their tears
Summer boy, give me your years
Give me your hand before autumn starts
Summer boy, give me your heart
