Took the Grandkids to Happy Hollow Park in San Jose, Ca. They have some animals and a petting Zoo for the kids. This Meerkat was just posing away, proud as can be, thought I would get a few snaps of him. here they are.
Thanks for all the C+C's on my previous upload.
Have a great day,
Bob

Lovely shots Bob and the dark BG is great. On no1, I think I would have cloned out the stone in the left hand corner as it's a slight distraction, but that's only my personal opinion.

Lovely shots of a great animal. #1 seems sharper, so gets my vote. All three, however, could do with cropping so the meerkat is not central. Cut the left off #1 and #2 and the right off #3 so in each case he has some space to look into.
