Things Ain't Always What They Seem.

By Tooma
More shots from Calderglen Country Park in East Kilbride, and shooting through glass again, so sorry about the reflections in places.

This is a type of Mongoose, a Common Kusimanse in fact. See V3 for more info.

If you have not understood my title, or even if you have, the original shot is V1, and you still may do a double-take at that. Wish I could pat myself on the back for this one, but it is just circumstance. A good one to keep for Silly Sunday, I thought.

Have a great week all. 😎

Made me look twice too!! Smile

If you gently place your lens against the glass you won't get any reflections! Smile

I cannot say it is an animal I have come across, but increased my knowledge of it now, from your images. Good capture showing its sharp looking claws.
