[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
the wild forrow never leaves the mother's save nearness. Because of the colored stirpes of the skin, the forrow can be disguised in the dry leaves of the forest's ground. At the end of the 6 month, the forrow loses
his stripes and the skin gets the normal and usual colour. At that time, he is already independent fm the mother and will be able to go for his own way. This picture have been taken in the Goldau National Park. It was very cold and you can see that the forrows were searching for a warm place near the mother.. Camera: Nikon F65 /
85-200 mm

Very nice photo.
I have question: If they were in some kind of cage or behind some fence?
I know that Wild boards can be very dangerous. I met once a mother with little farrows and she wasn't very happy. When they have young it is better get of their road. Generally when you meet their father it is better to do the same ;-)
I like this photo very much.
Thanks for posting :-)

Very cute photo, Catia, I guess the first one with wild sow and babies on TN. I was thinking of the same question about fence or not, but you replied already. Very interesting shot, a bit soft on the clear parts, though, where differences of coats between adult and youngs are well shown.

It is a nice and interesting shot, and you got it with a slight softness that gives a nice mood this time. Nice also your previous posts. Hope to see more photos and critiques soon. Welcome to TN.

A very nice family seen could be any form of pig across the world with a babies sleeping so peacefully here. the POV is good with the pigletts lined up at an angle across the screen.

This is very high on the cute scale! Nice shot of these wee babes. I have never seen these before. Thanks for introducing me to a new creature. TFS

Also a first for me - definately a sweet picture - they look so peaceful but I'm sure the peacefullness doesn't last long once they awaken.
Thanks for posting - good note too.
