Pig: Florida Wild Boar  
Dark creatures were moving in the tall weeds on the roadside, so we pulled over for a closer look.

The little ones scurried off into the trees, but this big one nosed the ground between two rows of orange trees. I wanted it to turn around so I could get my first decent wild pig picture.
Then it started to turn with its snout sniffing the air as though it knew I was watching from a distance that suddenly seemed extremely insufficient.

This was my first wild boar encounter. I wasn't very close, but even so, that was a BIG pig! When we made eye contact I decided that it could outrun me and I high-tailed it out of there right fast.
