I love these Mongooses.
They are the same family as the meerkat and they are so adorable to watch.


Laura E. Swan level-classic June 25, 2015

Wow! They are so unusual and beautiful. And they look very gentle. Do they move really slowly or are they quick little animals? I love the natural setting and their pose is adorable. They seemed happy to see you, SSSKiki! :D Love it! SSSLala :) #1622084

Thanks so much, SSSL and Tammy.
Sister, these little critters move so fast and are very difficult to catch. They are like meerkats. #11322899

Wonderful light, clarity, and dof, Kiki. Would've commented sooner on these cute critters, but, as you know, they had me chained to a hospital bed, with only e-mails from two special friends to cheer me up. :-)
Thank you again for brightening my days while I was "away".
And I do believe this capture has all the makings of a WINNER! #11329705
