Photo of the Week Oink OinkRooting in the dirt left this little piggy’s nose dirty as he sniffs toward the camera. This pig seems pretty interested in the camera. The pigs at my house are a little camera-shy. Sure they will let my dad give them a scratch, but as soon as I try to get up close to take a picture, they run off into their little house.

If this picture sparked your interest in pigs and you wanted to know more, check out The Homestead Hog. It can guide you through the process of raising a baby pig.

Thank you CU photographer peterbec for submitting your photo this week. Look through peterbec’s New Jersey and You, Perfect Together to see other homesteading images. Also, look around at other albums; they were full of great pictures.  

Keep submitting your photos every week to the CU photo-sharing site. Each week the Photo of the Week is taken from that week’s submissions. You have to submit every week for a chance to be the Photo of the Week!

When you submit photos, don’t forget to write captions and fill out your bio. It’s fun to know what the CU photographer thinks!
