Courtesy of Treetops in Kenya's Aberdares.  Old equipment by today's standards but didn't know that back then...LOL.  Moral.  Just wish I could get out there again and bother chasing the next latest and greatest.  

Covid 19 amongst many lessons, has brought home the treasure of just having the opportunity to be out there in the field.

Not an earth shaker, but these Warthogs just have overload in character.  

Thank you for looking.  Hope all safe.

I've never had one.....but I'll take your word for it, Dave!  :wink:   I have  heard the saying ''As happy as a pig in muck!''  and this little piggy looks so happy in its mud bath!

A "beautiful" image of a subject that put the U in Ugly.  As far as the equipment is concerned its usually the photographer, and only in rare cases the equipment, that makes the difference.  Great job catching the essence of the Warthog.
