Hello Ori,
You couldn't expect better POV from a jeep when capturing such small species. Well captured; almost camouflaged. Perfect colour.
Thanks for sharing,
Regards and have a nice WE,

Hello Ori,
Great shot of this cute little sand rat. I love the way the pitch black eye and tail stand out so well. Excellent detail and exposure is right on the money. Hard to believe it keeps its coat so clean while living in such a sandy and dusty burrow. Well done !!
