The South African Meerkat (2)

By Jimbob
This is the second Meerkat taken from the Norfolk Wild life Centre a couple of weeks ago. I stood very still for ages waiting for him to leave his burrow. A group of children walked by making a bit of noise, then out he came to see who was making the din. He looked disapprovingly at the children and disappeared back down the burrow again.

Comments and critiques are most welcome; thanks for stopping by to view this photo.

It's a meerkat, so it's automatically wonderful, of course.

You've caught the watchful look - no-one sneaks up on meerkats...
