This Little Piggy…


This little Piggy…
While we were down at White Oak Pastures waiting for the fog to lift enough to photograph Eagles, I remembered some advice from Evelyn…”photograph the farm animals too, you can always use more stock shots”…
It was actually fun to get some images of the pigs, lambs and chickens, even if it was technically work. The piglets were actually kind of cute, well for swine. It is easy to look at them and see how cute they are and then all of a sudden look and see the big sow in the mud and remember they grow up. This was one of my favorite images of the group of piglets. They wanted to check out the guys with cameras at the fence but were a little shy. Again, if you are ever going down Hwy 27, the Martha Berry Highway, stop in Bluffton and check out White Oak Patures. It isn’t a petting zoo, so don’t walk out to pet the cute piglets.

  1. They are darling in the tiny form. Great shot.

  2. They really are cute…when they’re little! Had a chance to shoot some bluebirds this morning with my GI 150-600 handheld. It’s SO heavy! 🙂

      Very light compared to a big ole 600mm f4 though! I would definitely recommend a monopod at the least though. Very cool on the Bluebirds!

  3. Adorable! Happy New Year.
