Tried to make a warthog look more interesting. Shot from a low angle and the B&W gives lovely crisp contrast between the bristles and skin. Not sure about the crop but wanted to avoid the predictable full face and hoped that this would focus attention on her lovely Piggy Eyes.

Splendid Photograph. the amazing detail held my attention. Danie in entirely correct it reminds me very much of Zuckerman's work. Congrats on SOTW

This image reminds me a bit of Morten Koldby and Andrew Zuckerman's work. It is a completely different wildlife shot than what we're used to seeing on this platform! Technically, maybe not perfect in terms of the deep-edging, but boy do I like this image! Worthy feature!
