The demanding little piglets were so hungry they managed to persaude their mother to stop and feed them in the middle of a road.
The sow was oblivious to the oncoming traffic as she stood waiting for her young ones to finish suckling.
However, the drivers did not seem put out by the extraordinary sight, which photographer Michele Molinar stumbled across by in Saranda, Albania.
Caution - pigs feeding: An unusual agricultural scene in Saranda, Albania, holds up traffic temporarily - but the motorist doesn't seem too bothered
Michele was stunned when the car she was driving in was held up by the amazing scene while she was on an assignment.
Never one to let a good opportunity pass, the 49 year old hopped out the car to capture the moment forever.
She said: 'I was reporting for an Italian travel magazine and trying to find the country's most interesting spots.
'I was with a translator and we had just driven through an olive tree orchard. Then, just after a curve there she was, a sow with her eight piglets in the middle of the road.
'She was stood there, silent, with her eyes shut. She stood there letting me walk around and take the picture.
'After about five minutes she decided it was enough and scampered off, followed by her little team.
'I was completely shocked and surprised. Albania is like another world and this was a truly unique sight.'
