Lunch with Javalinas (Patagonia, AZ)

During my daily walk on the creek trail, I surprised a family of Javalinas out of the thicket.  I'm not sure who had the bigger heart or them!

They were running across the path in front and behind me.  Squealing and grunting as they ran by.  I, in the meantime, was trying to just breathe and not join them in squealing.
After all that excitement, the Javalina did not run far.  They stopped at the creek.  Oh look!   Water Cress!  Let's eat!  I'm still standing there on the path and we can still see each other.  Did they care?  Not at all.

Talk about a short attention span.  Which gave me a chance to get some great photos of the babies.  So adorable!  At a distance, of course.
This one is a little bit older.
Ma!  I'm stuck!
Wait for us!
Nom! Nom! Nom!  Mama is one little piggy...
....and one bird photo.  This one was catching bugs over the creek and stop on the log to see what I was doing.


  1. OMG I almost want to say they're cute! ...Ok, they're cute! : )
    Laura - stopping by from EBT
    Have a great day!

  2. Those babies are cute, but at the same time.. They look a little scary. Yikes. lol You honestly post some of the prettiest wild life photos! xo

  3. I don't know the difference between a javalina and a wild boar but in Japan, wild boars are dangerous and you don't stick around for pictures.

  4. I follow your blog and appreciate everything you share - that's why I included you in the "Versatile Blogger award" (see:

  5. Cute little babies! but I'd be afraid of the momma all the same ; )

    1. Hi Tina, I kept my distance once they settled down. NO getting close to babies or Mom! I use a 500mm lens and crop photos for close-ups.


Thanks for taking time to leave me a comment. I enjoy hearing from you.
