Close Encounters


Close Encounters, originally uploaded by Ben909.

This shot is one of a series from perhaps the most exciting, and at times heart-pounding, wild boar encounter I’ve had yet. They were on a hillside completely covered in fern, in many places way above my head. It was all very ‘Jurassic Park’ with ferns shaking and moving all over the place (there are youngsters about too), and very few actual glimpses of the boar. In order to get any visibility I ended up lying down under the fern canopy after this shot, from where I managed a lot more shots. I have a huge respect for these elusive creatures, and fell in love with them the very first time I found them. I also got quite a few minutes of HD video, which might also find its way on to the blog.
