Pennywell piggies game, set and match for Wimbledon

WITH the Wimbledon tennis tournament in full swing, these two little porkers are all game, set and match at their home at Pennywell Farm in South Devon.

I was photographing the piglets for a calendar published in the USA. The American public love the tiny pigs with the calendar featuring on the Ellen Degeneres Show on daytime television.

Having spent 10 years with the tiny little pigs you get know what ideas they will co-operate with.

The netting was from a table tennis set along with toy rackets. Keeping the net horizontal without a sag in the middle was done with a 5mm fibre rod fed through the top of the net.

The image was totally as you see it, although in the final cut, one of the piglets was wearing a John McEnroe-style sweat band… computer added!
