Little Piggies

By bolebrown
I took this in October last year. My wife and 2 children stayed at friends and looked after their animals while they were away on hols. i spent alot of time with these piglets and grew quite fond of the little things. I took a few pictures,this one being the best. They slept under a huge light to keep them warm at night, which gives it that warm feeling. It was quite difficult to eat pork for a while after looking after these guys. Thanks again for looking.

This shot makes me pig sick Mr Brown, so not only have you cooked your goose you have had your bacon. Seriously a good capture and as you say the light gives it a nice warm look.
