Wonderful, Donna. Seems to be walking righ up to inspect the lens. Guess sometimes you have to get down and dirty.

Thanks Paul! You are absolutly correct. This was one of the rare cleaner areas at the farm too, but when I got home last night everything had to be soaked and washed immediatly including my gear and myself!.. Everything was filthy but it fun!!

Thanks Terry& Mette!!

Thanks for all of the nice comments;everyone!

Susan, I didn't have a protective filter on the lens but I should have had one. I don't own any..

A few of the piglets ran up to the lens, sniffed it and got it full of mud. I cleaned it and it looks ok but that wasn't smart of me to go out there unprotected. Maybe I'll pick up one for this specific 'funny animal'lens, but I don't think that they make any kind of filtersfor the super wide angle lenses such as mine. I neve saw a place where it could be screwed in..

Thanks for the comments.

The piglet is adorable, especially at the angle you shot him. He would be a great character in a childrens book. Ma

Thanks everyone! I can't resist trying to capture those big round noses. They are adorable when they are small like this one.

Donna, the result was worth the effort! Hope your camera is OK. They don't go through the washing machine very well. Great job and congrats!

Thank you very much; Patricia! I value your opinion. You have a great eye for seeing a winner and your right almost every time!!

I hope your right this time again!

I think that this little piggie with the boo boo turned out quite well also. The late day light was in my favor. I have some more reeeaally funny pictures of the piglets, but I'm not sure that the others are suited for this site!! THanks again. Donnarae~
