Milk on tap!

By KangaGal
Taken at the Brisbane Royal Show. I spent a bit of time with these piggies & one of the stewards in seeing my interest, came over for a yarn. I'd noticed all the little piglets playing or sleeping, then the sow gives a signal and they all come running to her & latch on, then another squeal signals that the milk is now flowing. This is when the teats go taut as the piglets suckle in earnest. It was just a fluke that I 'clicked' at that precise time. Then as they have their fill, their little eyes glaze over and they fall sideways. It is so cute (if you like pigs!)

It's lovely to see them all clean in deep straw. Something that astonishes me is the fact each piglet has it's own teat and won't visit any other!! Smile

Fabulous shot that made me smile - and yes, I do like pigs. The limited colour range makes for a very engaging shot that concentrates on the activity therein.
