Hello Simon, welcome to TN. This is a great image to be starting off with. Great composition and detail, and (most importantly) you've captured him in his natural environment.
I would say that your hog is possibly albino as he is paler than average and the nose and ears are generally black or brown, not pink.
It isn't unusual for hogs to be wandering around during the day, especially if food supplies are low or if they have been disturbed, but in winter this is never a good sign. A hog needs to be 500-600g to hibernate succesfully so if a small one is spotted wandering around he should be taken indoors and kept in a warm box wrapped in a towel until the spring.
Never feed them milk or bread. Normal dog food (never fish) and water are sufficient.
Thanks for posting
What a beautiful capture, incredibly rugged and wild.
I was lucky enough to spot one from the train a couple of months ago. My first wild hare!
I love the muted colours, great stuff.
Thanks for sharing.
This is superb Gerhard, just fantastic! Such incredible detail and the light is fantastic! Great pov -although probably a bit too close ;-)
The sunscreen info in your note was really interesting.
This guy has some major dental issues!!
Great work, thanks for posting.
(Hope your keeping well).
Just incredible! A truly amazing action shot, completely inspiring.
Stunning detail, great pov and dof.
The bg sets it off a treat.
Amazing work, thanks for sharing.
A beauty Jaap
The details on the wing are great and the colours are just beautiful.
Probably a tad too 'central' for my liking, but a stunning capture.
Thanks for sharing.
An exceptional image, incredibly crisp and clear.
Great dof, pov and composition.
Very good work, thanks for posting.
He's actually a Jackdaw. A nice image, although I would prefer him to be less centred.
Thank you for posting and welcome to Treknature.
A superb capture THAT NEEDS A NOTE!!!
Wow a stunning capture Enrico. Superb work. Great composition with the sun captured perfectly on the lower mountain and in the bg. I probably would have preferred this image without the human elemant but thats just my opinion.
(A good friend of mine is climbing MB next year and would appreciate any help on what equipment to take, photography wise).
Thanks for posting and welcome to TN.
'have a great day and beware of Black Cats! :-)'
No chance, I've tripped over our black cat Chili six times already this morning where she's 'crossed my path'!
A nice detailed shot of this garden spider. I tried a few shots like this yesterday (garden is teeming with them). I was hh and it was a tad windy so not much luck :-(
I really like the composotion but her abdomen is a touch OE (but your probably aware of that).
Thanks for posting.
Have a great day, and stay safe *lol*
