[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Banded Mongoose (Mungos mungo) is one of the few mongoose species that lives in group, with a complex social structure.
This mongoose was part of a large group including some young ones. We spent some time watching them as they were busy walking around, and their group behaviour was quite interesting. A young followed this mongoose, as you can see in the workshop I posted.

Beautiful, interesting creatures!

Hi Odile, a well captured image- not always so easy to photograph .. a nice narrow DOF giving good focusa on the mongoose. have a great weekend Rich

Bonjour Odile,
La profondeur de champ ne me parait pas excellente à moins que l'image soit très légèrement floue à cause de l'utilisation du téléobjectif sans trépied, mais le sujet est tout de même relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

  • Great

Bonsoir Odile,

Excellente capture , la netteté est rendez-vous.
Couleur du pelage et le cadrage est parfait, belle luminosité et clarté.
Un très bon week end.

Hello Odile,

A fine capture of this furry creature!
The animal appears nicely in its natural habitat, and the image shows sharp fine details in a well composed presentation...
