[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot of the same pair of Meerkats I posted here. This one was taken a couple of minutes earlier. The right meerkat obviously got tired after all this stretching!

Conditions the same:
Dry, sunny, mid-afternoon.
RAW mode, manual exposure, handheld.

I hope you like it.

Hi Andy!
interesting foto, what are they looking ?
I like sharpness and composition.
really good shot.

Another lovely shot Andy!
These fellows are really nice models.
Photo has great colours and perfect lighting.
I would maybe want to see a bit more barrel and a bit less space from above, but this composition looks good too.
Overall, superb, very clear shot.
I like it very much.

Fantastic shot Andy ... way better than the one you posted earlier. Composition is good (you could have off-centered the meerkats a wee bit more), details are razorsharp and the pose of the meerkars is very nice. What I like most of all is the very warm light. The colors are also very, very nice and enjoyable because the tones do not differ that much and therefore this picture is peaceful for the eye. A very good shot! TFS!


Wow, Andy, phenomenal capture. Great color and POV. I think I would like a tighter crop to make it less obvious they are in an enclosure. Great post!


Hi Andy,
I like your little friends so much, they are always funny and sympatic.
You catched them in a nice position, nice POV and good DOF, I like it, thanks

Excellent pose you captured, good details/sharpness. Like the warm earthy colours. Suggest a tighter crop with subjects off-center (e.g. delete 20% from top and left). As it is it has a high impact, very well done!

These creatures are such fun. You've captured them here in a classic pose, Andy. The depth of field is particularly effective in this photo. Nice work!

Another great shot of these two Andy,
Good detail and great POV. Well composed. Good colours & framing.
Early morning rush!
Well captured, thanks for posting

Hello Andy!
Wonderful compositon.Lighting,details,sharpness,POV,colors and funny pose of meerkats are also excellent.

Hi Andy

Good details. Perfect pose and light. Excellent BG. Nice work. Thanks

Great photo and so cute! And I love the texture of the barrel.

Great compo and pov :)

Take care, Yan

Hi Andy, I love this one, all in tones of brown and in a wonderful warm light. I think the pose and your POV is great and I think the whole scene is fantastic. Great composition (I think it's great the way it is) and technical execution: sharp, detailed, great DOF and colours. Very well done :)

What a superb and interesting tandem that you have well captured ! They are so nice with its pose on barrel ! I would like to in real... Thanks for sharing Andy.

Excellent, Andy, absolutely excellent! The barill they rest on regardless it betrays the captivity status, it does nothing but add to the caricatural mood. Stock photography material here!

Funny shot!
I like how they are watching something togheter!
Bye Tom

What a fabulous & funny photo.
The colours & the details are just WOW.
You could put that in a competition with a caption and win hands up!!
