This year’s beautiful bluebells in Raincliffe Woods have been making an impression on artists and photographers alike.

The stunning scene was captured by Scarborough artist Alan Stuttle, who always visits to look at the bluebells every year.

However, he was surprised to be joined by a special visitor while he was working on the painting.

Alan said: “The hare just appeared as I was working there. It was really calm and showed no fear at all.”

He added that he was at the top of Raincliffe Woods, where the scene was particularly spectacular.

Alan said: “There were so many out in bloom. I would really encourage people to go and see them if they get chance. I go every year and this time they looked particularly good.”

Photographer Neil Silk captured the beauty of the bluebells at close quarters. On the second picture, a spider can be seen on top of the flower.
