Little Piggies

We visited a farm with a barn full of animals for Maine Maple Sunday, and the pigs were so cute! I love the spot on the middle pig's ear and the way her toes look like she's wearing nail polish. And look at that pig on the right sticking its nose up--so stinkin' cute! I wish I had gotten more of the pigs on the left into the frame, but it was really crowded in there. I was so enamored I practically could have kissed them.
But they were interested in kissing this guy:
Climbing up the side of their pen to see people--it reminded me of puppies! I've never seen such friendly pigs! I also had never noticed before how human-like their eyes are.

They are cute. Only you could make them sound so cuddly.

Oh, they are so cute! Not like the pigs I've seen at the county fairs. Great coloring, too.

I love pigs from a distance, and I think they're one of the cutest animals ever, but I raised one in high school (her name was "pork chop", ha!) and don't think I could ever handle being up near one again.

These shots are great, though, nice focus and great capture of the moment.

I really love the lighting in that first shot!
I can't decide whether I think pigs are cute or creepy! Hmmm :)

Oh my, they're adorable! I'd have wanted to take one home! :)

Oh my word...they are so amazing...and I just love the last one where he is looking at you. I hate myself for loving bacon right now.

So cute! You can almost see them "morph" into someone you know, right before your eyes! I love that second shot, and the way you caught the facial expression on that guy (did you put him up to this?). . . nice interaction!
