Wild Boar

A rare portrait of a Wild Boar (Sus scrofa) in the open, in full day light. Most of my Wild Boar encounters have taken place during the night. The few images that I have are in thick bushes or in dark parts of the forest... but this one was really enjoying himself, eating acorns, and allowed me to press the shutter at will.

Casi todas mis encuentros con Jabali (Sus scrofa) han sido durante la noche. Las pocas imagenes que tengo son entre maleza, o en partes poco iluminadas del bosque... pero en este caso hubo suerte: este gran jabalí adulto estaba atiborrándose de bellotas de una encina (Quercus ilex) cercana, y me dejo fotografiarle a gusto.
