The question I ask myself is, "do I see any gregariousness between yourself and this Warthog?" I will have to allow you to answer this question to yourself and live with your response. Lol...
You must have quite a life there as you are able to see the many of the world's wildlife in their natural state.
An excellent capture with great detail to this muddy cousin of ours,
Have A great month ahead...

Good morning Anna
a great capture of Warthog from Kruger's fascinating nature. you greatly captured it with great POV, eyes contact and focus. It gave to you a special pose.
When I was a child, we watched Tarzan cartoon on black-white TV and I remember "Horta" as a Warthog. Maybe funny memory:) But I remember horta, whenever I see this species.
thanks for sharing and thanks for good informative notes.
please forward my best regards to Loot.
have a nice week
PS: I see just after message, sorry for pts.

I am always impressed with the quality of your images. I do enjoy looking at them. I expect you will be taking pleasure in taking lots of new shots in Kruger. I'll be looking forward to them. I can't say that I see a lot of family resemblance but I suppose you know best. Perhaps it is more a kinship of personality and temperament. : )

Well eventually by luck I have found one of your pics in the gallery, and a great one at that.Excellent sharpness and detail of the warthogs body hairs, "unshaved beard" and waterline.Well done to the natural envirnment as well and TFS.

A very charming creature! I always had a "faible" for these animals, I don't know why. May be because they remind me of an old wise man :-)
An excellent picture, despite the strong light, good focus on the animal and pleasing blue reflections of the water in the background.
I wish you a beautiful trip to Kruger.

es siempre un placer el leer tus agradables comentarios. Al igfual que mi toma es desconocida para tí, aún lo son más las tuyas para mí jeje.
Tienes la suerte de poder ver unos animales que pocas personas hemos podido ver el natural.
Bien captada con una pose acertada.
Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

A great close-up with a 78 mm focal lense ? is it a domesticated warthog ?, I'm joking!
Stunning sharp details

I love how you made-ol and played it.
My warm congratulations.

Nice to see this warthog at eye level. It seems that this warthog is looking at me and saying don't you dare get close to me. Very well done picture. Wish you a wonderful trip to Kruger.

A very fine and sharp capture of this Warthog posing very nicely for you. I expect you kept a safe distance as I'd guess they're not too friendly to humans either like our Wild Boar.
Beautiful light and colours in this capture too.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

I think wart hogs are so cute (in photography). Their hairy bodies, stubby legs and small eyes, make them look a bit comical. I like the way you captured him staring right into your lens. I can see by his wet nose he just had a drink or found something good to eat in the mud.
- lawhill (2054)

Looking at this picture can transport me close enough to
Enjoy and almost smell and feel the contact, perfect shot.\
Recall me young years in my natal Uruguay, we use to
Hunting (in Spanish) Jabali, looks like very close to a Warthog
Very dangerous in the wild, we use to have seven or eight
Dogs Argentinian Dogos to help holding down from the ears,
And legs, waiting until we arrive.
Thanks for sharing, Lawhill.

Ciao Miss Piggy, great portrait of fantastic creature, wonderful natural colors and splendid sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio
I must thank you for your kind words on my picture of the Lesser Himalaya. As it is, I too am bogged down in work now and mark my occasional presence on TN through a picture from the archives.
Have a great outing to Kruger National Park!
Thanks for this great picture of a Warthog. Needless to say, you have a great sense of humour which I enjoy and appreciate.
'Aunty' does look quite prim to me despite her muddy feet :).

I love warthogs, for some reason.
And this one is beautifully captured... crisp details in those hard bristles of hair, the legs caked in mud...
and a great eye contact, showing his typical warthog attitude.
Great shot. TFS. : )

A super detailed image!! Love the head-on facial pose and beautiful natural colors. Perfectly exposed!!
It must be exciting to be able to see these exotic animals in their natural habitat. I always enjoy stopping in from time to time to see what you have been up to. Great notes!!

Hello Anna !
I love pigs, boars, and every animal of this family - so I am more than pleased to meet "Aunt Vlakvark". She's not exactly a beauty, but you made such a great portrait of her ! :-) I love all the details on the face, and I also like how the Warthog is looking at you. He looks funny with his nose and feet covered in mud. The composition, the POV, the colors, the pose of the animal and the eye-contact, everything is really excellent ! Very well done, and I hope you'll find more time for TN soon !

Great shot of your aunty, so attractive. Is she single, I'd love to meet here one day :)
You guys are so lucky to all these big mammals wandering around, its so unlike anywhere else. Great shot from the hide, good POV and composition. Your hides are another unique structure that seem to work well in SA. We have a number of bird hides in Oz, but they just don't seem to work like they do in SA, nothing comes near them. Say hi to Loot for me, long time since we've seen him here.

Una foto muy hermosa tanto por su contenido y lograda en su ambiente natural, lo cual a mi me agrada mucho. La pose y el fondo muy bellos, y los detalles en el Jabali lucen de maravilla gracias a la calidad de la imagen.
aun sigo riendo del nombre elegido en la foto. Muy apropiado.

thanks for your recent critiques and congratulations for coming back from the trip with wonderful shots. Very eager to look at it.
I like the notes written very much, as it is very useful indeed. We also have the wild boar that posses the similarity in term of habits. There were many casualties too.
The picture depicted is very clear with the light hitting the body and streams of long and hard whtish hairs could be seen clearly.
The habitat is similar too as they like mud, they even rake soft earth to get worms from it.
nice presentation and very infromative.

a very beautiful picture of the Warthog taken from an excellent POV in a great posture with a very intense eye contact, very good sharpness and splendid natural colours.
