Beautiful - I just love these guys. When I here the word Africa these guys gome to mind. Very well captured with an excellent composition. I know I've said it, but I love these guys!
Eating looks hard, I would not want to knee!!!! They are ugly, but interesting!
Very good family portrait with good sharpness and detail. These three must be quite tamed. I usually just see them running away with their tails in the air like antennas. They can be just as noisy as the rest of they family.
Very good and interesting capture Ben. well done.
