[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was prospecting a grazing free area in the Shouf mountains, set within the Al-Shouf Cedars Nature Reserve in Mount-Lebanon. It was a bit early in the morning, and as I took this photo the smell of wet beast crept slowly up my nostrils, a few meters away from me I quickly found a wild boar sleeping site, the earth was freshly overturned and the strong smell indicated it was very recently occupied. Having had a scary experience with a boar once before, I scattered out of there real quick!
