Thanks so much, everyone.
I would have LOVED to have had a better situation and more options when taking this. These piglets were on display in an education building at a state fair. Fair goers were literally herded through - up a ramp and then alongside the pens where the mamas lay contentedly while the little ones either nursed or climbed over and crawled under one another. There were lights on the animals - designed to keep them warm as well as to thwart photographers LOL I opened the view screen on the back of my camera and held the camera over the fence and down as far as I could to take any pictures at all. This is one that IMO is much improved with an art filter, but I know how DPC voters in general feel about those, so I refrained.

Love the subject. I wonder how it would look if you came down to a more horizontal position and zoomed in on the 3 in the middle. Congrats.
