Beautiful Morning: The Finale

Day 41/Year 2
Here's the cuteness as promised! She is very pregnant and when she poked her head out of the barn to see who was out there, the three of us were like the Paparazzi just rifling off shots of her. She was a very obliging model! :-)
This mini horse also endured the Paparazzi. We didn't seem to faze him, nor did we interrupt his snack:'s the ugliness that is so ugly, it's cute: cute is he, huh???????? :-) I've never seen such a fat Pot-Bellied Pig before.
Here's a shed on the farm that is behind the house:

And finally, here's a tree that was in the process of blooming for the season. It's remarkable how the colors of Spring mimic the colors of Fall:

  1. The pregnant mom peeking out is sooo cute!
    I think Mr Piggy is a distant cousin of Porkys!!

  2. Thanks Nancy! I'm glad you liked the cuteness. I think she was adorable too! :-) Yes, the pig could me a relative of Porky! We fed Porky really well, and he always maintained a good weight. I can only imagine what this guy must be eating! :-)

  3. Great shots Carol! It was fun photographing with you! That morning was a perfect example of how I like to shoot. Set out with a goal in mind, but be flexible when the coyotes don't show up. You can turn up some real gems if you are willing to take what is given to you!

  4. Absolutely Greg. I agree. :-)

  5. Cuteness overload!! I would have photographed those critters all day long!! :-)

  6. Thanks Tracy! They were lots of fun to photograph for sure.
