Pigs may not fly, but they do swim, as evidenced by this photo taken in the Bahamas by Neil Hammerschlag.

The paddling pig is part of a family that inhabits a small island and ventures out to meet passing boats, according to Hammerschlag, who won first place in a special division created for University of Miami students of the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science's amateur underwater-photography contest.
