[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Mongooses are 33 living species of small carnivorans from southern Eurasia and mainland Africa of the family Herpestidae. Four additional species from Madagascar in the subfamily Galidiinae, which were previously classified in this family, are also referred to as "mongooses" or "mongoose-like". Genetic evidence indicates that the Galidiinae are more closely related to other Madagascar carnivorans in the family Eupleridae, which is the closest living group to the true mongooses.

Hello George,

HI George,

Hallo George,
A Very sharp detailed photo of this male Mongoose. Excellent eye contact, low POV with a shallow DOF framing your object perfectly. I just love it.
Best regards,
Thank you very much for the guidance regarding the signature. Now I would like to make you a bit jealous! We are off to ETOSHA and HENTIES BAY in Namibia from 2012/12/08 and will turn around towards home on 2013/01/03. We should be home on 2013/01/05. Hope I can bring something back that will contribute towards photography and wildlife.
