Wild Boar

Wild Boar, Forest of Dean, originally uploaded by Ben909.

This was taken last month at dusk. I’d spotted a group from some distance away, just as they were waking up for the night. After feeding the little ones they started to head off to where they were going, and I was spotted. This sow wasn’t very pleased – note the swishing tail. This is the last photo from that evening as I respectfully walked away at that point. The coat of this boar is making the transition from the reddish brown colour of a juvenile boar to the black colour of the adult.
