The snowshoe hare, the most common hare in Canada, is probably at the peak of its 10-year cycle, since they have been seen all over Quebec this summer. This hare was photographed in Stoneham.

All the photos posted on the Internet recently of hares in Quebec backyards made me want to learn more about our Canadian hares.
