[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was lucky to capture this little family on an open dirt road in the fabulous Loskop Nature Reserve ( Mpumalanga ) early this year. This wonderful creatures seems quite wildly spread around the park but they are always cautious and as soon as they see an approaching vehicles disappears into the bush where they are usually well camouflaged.

Beautiful and so brave of them to be right in the middle of the road, the mama should teach the young not to feed on the street :)

Hello George,
What a fine looking family, and you captured them right at dinner time:) I don't know if I've ever seen a warthog of this hue before, most have been a grayish to chocolate color. The reddish blond mane of the female is beautiful to say the least, and her piglets seem to share their mothers genes. Overall a winner in my book!!
It's been a rather brutal Winter so far here in Ohio. Temps have been down to minus 13 degrees F and we've had lots of snow. Not a good time to be out with a camera:(
