But first we went in search of White-lipped Peccaries that live in the forests around Jardim. These pig-like animals roam around and we were lucky to see quite a number of them running back and forth, including a sow with her litter of adorable little piglets.

The morning was overcast with a very dull light, so we practiced different lighting techniques. The most successful were our panning shots with rear-curtain full flash. These worked really well in those conditions.

We were able to get really close to two of them to capture some amazing shots!
