hello tony,
i thought it would be a seascape, nice chage this time, looks like the two meerkats are posing for you, one of them is feeling shy and the other one is looking confidently to the camera, nicely composed shot, fine pov,
tfs & regards

Hi Tony,

This is a change of pace! They are so cute - one looking at you and smiling for the camera and the other looking at him. Nice details showing very long claws and catch-light in their eyes. Makes me wonder what they are thinking.


One can usually count on meerkats to provide an entertaining photograph. This is cute, well exposed and sharp. TFS

Hi Tony,
Another beautiful capture of these meerkats. Very nice details and well composed. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello lucky man,
very nice shot, both meerkat seem to pose only for you, very well done

Hello Ho,
In almost every zoo, one can view these fellows..:-)

Those little ones look like being on a small town gallery discussing about everything and noting before the sunset. They have so much to tell:) Well done with great mood,

In my next life I want to return as a Meerkat. That's the personality I want to have. :)

Wonderful shot! Great lighting, great comp., great details...and it's just downright adorable!

they look like they're just waiting for their coffee to arrive :)
Great composition, colours & details

Hello Tony,
Excellent detail in the fur coats!
Maybe even more noteworthy is their sitting position, never have I seen any other animal sit like that...
Their funny, curious faces are well captured!

Mr. and Mrs. sitting on the porch, gossiping about the neighbours and discussing whose turn it is to put the children to bed! I know who's not going to do it!

Fabulous expressions! Lovely sharp detail and colours!

Funny animals and nice shot

bonjour tony
totalement detandus ces deux là!
j'aime beaucoup leur posture.
la netteté est bonne mais je trouve que vous avez cadré un peu trop serré en bas de l'image.

A group sunbathing Ha Ha Ha Very funny photo. And that look on the face of the second meerkat. Very nice presentation
Best wishes

Hi Ho,
