Hog Heaven and a Heron.


Four days ago we went to Capon Springs, viewed fall colors, and made a stop at a pig farm. I had read that it was open to the public so of course I wanted to get some pictures. 

They are used to having visitors and came over to the gate to greet us. 

This cutie had a tag that said Rosie. You might say she's quite a ham! 

I don't want to talk about fall colors without showing you some that we saw on the way there.


Now for the heron that's been hanging out at our neighborhood lake. I spotted it yesterday in the late afternoon.

This afternoon he was there again. I saw him catch a fish!

  5. Pigs are very endearing characters. Many might not agree until they actually met a real live friendly pig.
