July 2020: Napping Sow, Hidden Dragon


Can you see the hidden dragon?
No, of course you can't. The pig ate it. :)

This shot was actually taken back in the spring, when the dear swine was basking in the sun to warm itself up. Now that it is in the 90's here it would be hiding in the shade somewhere or wallowing in a mud pit to keep cool.
Contrary to popular belief, pigs do have sweat glands.
Just not very many of them.
Too few to rely on them for cooling purposes, anyhow.
Yet they are still able to find different ways to cool down.

As a species, we humans could learn from pigs.
