We had seen the boar “family” to the right of the lane while exiting BDV the previous early evening. This time, they were on the olive grove side, as I said, having a little pre-dinner “nosh” among the trees. I didn’t want to frighten them away, nor did I want to invite them to come our way. So I just slowed the car and as quietly as possible lined up the shot and waited for the guy in front to look my way. When he did so, I got the picture and my emotion was, “OK, let’s get the hell out of here before they attack!” In truth I’m sure they were being as cautious of us as we were of them, and I was a little surprised that they didn’t run away as I focused the camera.
