Cynomis...or the prairie dog. Shot in Lille (France).
In a little city zoo. Free entrance...and that's very very good in my opinion.
Another shot from the same day you find here.

Hello Annick,

This is Very well exposed, with excellent sharpness, detail, DOF and colors. Very well done! TFS

Hi Annick,
Nice portrait. Excellent sharpness and composition.

Fantastic background colors, was it a painted backdrop? Whatever it is, OOF like that it makes a lovely complimentary contrast to the prairie dog. Super detail, this is the most disgruntled prairie dog I've ever seen, lol. TFS

Hi Annick,
finely detailed shot of the prairie dog and something that I have seen wild living here in Alberta more times than I can remember.What this photo does is make me appreciate how nice looking an animal they are,when all the time I have taken them for granted.That is the beauty of this photo and thank you for uploading it. Bob
