Spot a wild boar at Lower Pierce Reservoir

Although I know wild boars are commonly found within the forested areas around Lim Chu Kang, Mandai and Old Upper Thomson Road in Singapore, this is not the latest news already, but I am still excited to capture a wild boar through my camera lens, this is the 2nd time I saw a wild boar at Lower Peirce Reservoir Park, almost at the same place where I found it last year, very near to the visitor car park, it was standing behind the white mushroom like shelter and ran back to the forest behind it after awhile...I followed and waited for it to come out again...Yeah, I didn't wait for too long, it finally came out again, and stared at me while I was holding up my camera...

This is my first time managed to get close enough to this shy creature, actually I was afraid it may run to me or attack me, my hands were shaking...:) It was not friendly at all, it was staring at my camera...Although I know wild boars are not the threatened species, but they are still dangerous if they are frightened , so I stay clam, turned off my flash and looked back to it, very soon, it turned back to the forest behind again.
