Hello Olgired
I have a quite funny memory of wild boars..well it turned out to be funny in the end, when I first bought m Dslr camera back in the days me and a friend of mine went for a long walk taking pictures of everything that moved,I was a little bit upset because of how the pictures were coming out but back then I didn't know much about photography, did not know how light works and being used to compact cameras I trusted all the measurements on automatic...not a good idea.
We walked deep into he forest and we got somehow lost :)) and we started to argue witch is the right road to get out or somewhere because there was a huge storm coming up, huge storm, we went from A to B and so on, There where big thunders and winds we feared that one of the trees might snap and fall on someone, I was more upset that m camera will get wet and it will break. the started the rain, I quickly took out my clothes even the one that was on me end putt it in mu bag that even if it will get wet it will not wet the camera, I putt my t shirt on the camera and puting in a plastic back and finally i the bag... safe for a time. After the rain stop we where wet wet wet, but there was no big problem because it was in June and it was warm. after going a loong distance trying to find the way out of the forest we heard a small sqeel sound, we turned back and saw some little piglets, no problem there one of them even got close to us and I wanted to take my camera out and take a picture, but the real problem was the mother a huge pig with huge fangs coming toward us... I am not a good runner and tree climber but back at that moment I was awesome. me and the friend of mine climbed up a tree as quick as possible and stood there for like 1 hour or maby more after when we got down we where extra carefol to every sound and movement. Finally it was almost night when we found a road that lead to the main road and out of the forest. We went from 8 in the morning and got home at 11 at night =)) =)) From Pecica to Semlac. even the police stoped us we looked like some homeless guys all muddy and wet =)) =)). Thank you very much for bringing this memory up.
Great picture
Regards Hedesan
