Curious Little Meerkat

The above photograph was taken at the Houston Zoo in 2011. I personally love this photograph! I was only 2 meters (about 6 feet) away from this curious little Meerkat when I took this image. Meerkats are typically very skittish but, it appears that they can also be very curious animals at the same time. This Meerkat was not focused on me but, instead it was focused on my rather large 300mm lens. When photographing wild animals in a zoo or in the wild it always pays to make small, slow deliberate movements.

To learn more about Meerkats visit the Wikipedia and Houston Zoo web-sites.
