Bearded Pigs

The bearded pig (Sus barbatus), also known as the Bornean bearded pig, is a species of pig. It can be recognized by its prominent beard. It also sometimes has tassels on its tail. It is found in Southeast Asia—Sumatra, Borneo, the Malay Peninsula, and various smaller islands—where it inhabits rainforests and mangrove forests. The bearded pig lives in a family. It can reproduce from the age of 18 months, and can be cross-bred with other species in the family Suidae.

Man with Red Beard

Note by the photographer, Izzet Keribar: A very practical way to have a quick lunch all over England is to stop over at the " Prêt-à-Manger " sandwich stores. On such an occasion near Marble Arch I found a gentleman who looked quite different with his white hair and red beard. But I was quick to realize that the colors of the padding of the seat shared the same colors. So taken by a sudden urge to catch the scene I got just one picture before he realized he was my center of interest. Generally I wave a hand accompanied with a smile in these situations and it sure helps a lot.
