|This shot was taken when I saw a group of wild boars in the evening, there was an old female (in the Picture) and she was had at least 10-12 piglets.|
Wild boar (Sus scrofa), also known as wild pig, is a species of the pig genus Sus, part of the biological family Suidae. The species includes many subspecies. It is the wild ancestor of the domestic pig, an animal with which it freely hybridises. Wild boar are native across much of Northern and Central Europe, the Mediterranean Region (including North Africa's Atlas Mountains) and much of Asia, including Japan and as far south as Indonesia. Populations have also been artificially introduced in some parts of the world, most notably the Americas and Australasia. Elsewhere, populations have also become established after escapes of wild boar from captivity. (Wikipedia)

What an encounter, I would be afraid.
Love the perfect management of light. The sun coming from behind illuminates the back of this female Wild boar in a lovely way and the grasses in front are very attractive too in the evening light.
Well done as usual

Good capture of her "beady" eyes! Quite a dangerous situation for you!
