Hi Anfrea,
Nice isolation.
You captured it very well; they move quickly and suddenly.
Well done

Hello Andrea,
It is awesome to see how well it merges into the landscape colour wise...
Nice DOF makes the subject stand out after all, and the animal comes through with good colours and fine details!

Bonjour Andrea, superbe cette Mangouste dans son milieu naturel. Le mimetisme est excellent and great timing too. I like your composition and the perfect sharpness, best regards, Didier.

great pic, you can almost feel what is going on, TFS Ori

Hello Andrea
Very intersting subject.
Perfect focusing ,
Beautiful colors,


Hi Andrea,
A very good capture, you have had a great luck to make this picture.

Salutacions. Ferran

Bella cattura, Andrea!
Bei dettagli di questa mangusta; mi sembra che questi animali si mimetizzino bene con l'ambiente!

Ciao e grazie.

malgrado fossero poco chiare le istruzioni...... vedo che il link c', bravo!

buon ritratto, ma preferivo il topo.

Hi Andrea,
that's wonderful, so close and sharp - and only with the 70/200 - excellent.
You managed to get very near.
It's a cute animal, I like it, thanks

Yes I love to be at the Monte-Baldo - a great place - have you ever visited Modonna della Corona, this marvelous church inside the rocks?

Uncharacteristic (washed out?) colours for this interesting animal. DOF is good however.
Now that I've seen them in real life myself, my previous comment stands no more.
