Cactus apples (edibles) at sunset ,in central Israel. HDR from 3 different exposures.
Few meters from this spot I was very surprised to meet a wild boar (no cage!) for the first time in my life (out of a ZOO). The boar was not less surprised than I was and also faster , so when I attempted to take a nicer shot I only got its tail...

Yes, a worthy shot. Losing a ribbon by 0.001 stings slightly less because of the quality of what beat me.
