    I took my nephew to the zoo yesterday, and we had fun watching these little guys - Meerkats like Timon from "the lion king" movies...

    These are awesome, Jason! #5 is unbelievable. It looks as though you shot them in the wild.

    Meerkats are the cutest, aren't they? They have these big round, inquisitive eyes, and their behaviour is so humanlike, with them sitting on their hindlegs only for most of the time. You could interpret all sorts of emotions in them, if you wanted. Most of them are on the funny side :D.

    I like photo 4 and photo 6 really much for their focus and DOF and the last because it takes us all so close to the cute little meerkat! :D Nice.

    This is actually a great zoo for that, they do a lot of preservation of endagered species and many of the exhibits are free of fences and cages and such.

    I think I have a shot of him too, he was there ;) i have a ton of photos & i'm sure you will be seeing them soon, this was just one species... :confused:

    thanks for the wonderful comments everybody, you guys rock!

    thanks, ray, this is a fun one - not the biggest, only 40 acres, but the animals are always active and you can get pretty close to most of them...
