The meerkat or suricate Suricata suricatta is a small mammal and a member of the mongoose family. It inhabits all parts of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana and South Africa. A group of meerkats is called a "mob", "gang", or "clan". A meerkat clan often contains around 20 meerkats at a time, but some superfamilies have had 50 or more. Meerkats have an average life span of 12-14 years.

Hi Lenka,
A very good close up of the meerkat!
So interesting the black coloration around the eyes, it seems like a mask.
Details caught on the fur are so clear, and I like also the pose.
Congratulations and thanks for post it.
My best regards,

Hello Lenka,
Cute portrait of your furry friend!
DOF spot on, nice details in face and fur coat...
A well composed presentation with this nice animal!

Hello Lenka

What a cute image of this meerkat.
I realy like the DOF and POV.
The focus is very good with sharp details.
The colours are natural.
The frame is filled well.
