The Art of Foraging in the Forest

We spent Christmas in the New Forest which was wonderful. It was an active few days either biking, walking. But we did find some time to chill out in the spa. Whilst walking on Boxing day, we came across this pig searching for truffles. She was darting around so quickly so I chose to post the shot with movement. I also learnt yesterday you should keep one eye on the animal your photographing. A very tame wild pony decided to head-butt the end of my lens which resulted in a nice cut across the bridge of my nose! I'm not sure who was more shocked me or the pony!


  1. Love the movement in this Laura, and how lucky you were to be able to capture it!
    I wish you a wonderful New Year.

  2. So the action is really unseen on the other end of the camera. I imagine someone shooting that someone else shooting them shooting and on and on.

    I came via dVerse, roundabout.

  3. Ha ha, sometimes it's easy to forget that the lens isn't protection ... I've learned that on more than one occasion on the sideline of a football game. After being knocked over twice in one game, I now run with a player fills my lens. Hope you have a wonderful new year.

  4. I just discovered that my comment here hadn't been saved... So: Happy New Year to you, Laura! And what an exciting year is waiting for you!
