Hello Bunyapon,
Really this animal looks very active and even a little bit agressive in its decided way to run around..you have caught very well the specificity of this species. The movement is very well taken and the vivid eye very well shown!
Well done

Hi Bunyapon,

Fantastic shot my friend with good details. The mogoose is running very fast & you'd freeze the moment very well.

Bonjour Bunyapon

It does have a slight look resembling to my pairies dog, but probably a lot more agressive. Good image of the animal in motion good focus and good exposure and good details in shadows considering the verticality of the sun. Good picture and TFS


Hello Bungbing

Excellent capture, great action shot. Good detail and colour. regards yiannis

Hello Bungbing,
Fantastic photo of this rarely seen animal. Well I've only seen one once or twice that I can remember. Great sighting for sure my friend. Good clear details and if I look at the eyes definitely not an animal to mess with. Well done and tfs.
