Description: Who has not dreamed of photographing a Warthog that was not running away like a safari express? Well clearly the secret is capturing them in a happy moment!

Story from behind the lens: After years of photographing Warthogs running away I was delighted to find this mating pair of Warthogs so engrossed in their happy moment I was able to take my time photographing them relaxed and oblivious to us. It was a rare but happy moment to capture their ugly beautiful faces. No wonder they are a firm film favourite.
