Pretty Pigs (and friends)

By LynneJoyce  
Starting with an enchanting little chap, this is my attempt at Pig Portraiture with the addition of a couple of Stroppy Goose shots to add variety. All were taken at the award winning Gazegill Organic farm

Gazegill Organics

the lovely farm where Ansel was born and a place that I revisit regularly to buy organic produce at their farm shop. You may have seen it featured in BBC's Countryfile.

I love pigs and this post is dedicated to them. Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these shots.

V4 for me! Isn't it strange how some animals feature more in shots than others generally. Pigs, cows and sheep are generally overlooked. Only my personal observation though.

A set of delightful images Lynne. We have been visiting and feeding some Oxford Dandy and Black pigs at Redcastle near Inverness. As soon as they see us they come galloping across the field to get their carrots.

Splendid set

A delight to view, Lynne - impossible to choose a favourite!
All of the subjects look so clean and well looked after.

Brilliant, Lynne, love 'em!! 🐖🐷 I was born in the Chinese Year of the Pig, and it's also the Year of the Pig this year too. I love the expression on the goose's face in V1 & V9, but the pigs win it, and as Diane says, the laughing pig in V8 is a gem! 😁👍 If I thought I wasn't going to end up on someone's breakfast or dinner plate, I'd be re-incarnated as a pig, just pigging out doing nothing like these... 👍

What a selection of pigs and piglets: and not forgetting the odd goose or two.
Great camera work considering you did not dare use flash in this situation.
Love em all, Lynne, especially all those lazy ones having a snooze.

There's an awful lot of pork scratchings there, Lynne.

I especially like the images with a single pig - V3, V5 V14 - not least because I know how difficult that can be to achieve.

Superb set of captures, Lynne.
v12 is my fave. Smile
