Warthog – Residential Wildlife

Warthog MPila KwaZulu Natal Hluhluwe-IMfolozi South Africa

My third contribution in the 5 Days Black-and-White Challenge is an animal that is part of Africa’s notorious ‘ugly five’. I’m not sure if I would have posted this Warthog in colour, although we’ve got fond memories of her as the residential lawnmower of Mpila in Hluhluwe-iMfolozi. What stands out in this monochrome version is the incredible high contrasting texture of her hairy coat. And then those eyelashes – isn’t she pretty??!

If there is anyone who could learn us more about black and White photography it has to be Leanne Cole in my opinion. Leanne is a professional photographer based in Melbourne with a wonderful blog that is absolutely worth visiting – don’t miss her Monochrome Madness episodes.

    A great picture – but not sure if I would call her a beauty;) hehe

  2. Ah Maurice, you made me smile just thinking of Mpila’s warthogs. And they really are beautiful, in their own ugly sort of way… I love the detail in the B+W shot!
