Prairie dogs in the Bahamas?? Well, at the Ardastra Gardens zoo, actually..these three little lookouts caught my camera and eye as I spent an afternoon there last week. The zoo is right behind our small hotel, a nice place to spend a quiet afternoon! Especially when you are computerless!!
Shot in RAW, settings not recorded, used a tripod and 75-300mm lens at 300mm. Cloned out a large food dish and adusted levels and sharpening in PS 7
