The Look-out
The Look-out
Meerkats are very interesting to watch. While most of them play or work, there's always one that stands on a rock or something else and is the "look-out." In the wild, this is to avoid contact with predators.

This is beautifully captured, Crystal! I love the color of the background and the textures of his fur! It makes you want to pet him!! :-)

Thank you, Claudia :o). These little meercats were so fun to watch. They all looked at me when I was taking their pictures. This particular one even seemed to smile.
