This Hyrax is one of the most cutest animals in the world.
Fat, big eyes, little nose, long mustache, little ears, melody fur, cute foot and dirty teeth :)
I found it yesterday in north Israel, Rosh Hanikra.

Hi Nitzan, brilliant work - he looks like he needs some dentail work ;-). I love the expression you have captured here, very well done.

Nitzan, Cute hey? Hope you didn't loose any fingers on this shot! :-) This has great detail coupled with immediate "shock" value/impact.. Very well captured!

He is no longer cute, thats what makes him so cool ... Very nice capture ...

You've captured a powerful expression here, and even if it's a cute animal, he doesn't look friendly like this :-). Very good tight framing and details. The curled tongue and the two upper teeth also make the shot. Very good portrait, Nitzan.

Well, if you say that this is one of the cutest animals, I cant imagine how the Agressive ones are :D
You got a fantastic capture, I like everything, the DOF, the light and of course the moment. Very good composition filling all the frame. TFS.

Fantastic photo Nitzan,congratulations.

Excellent frontal capture Nitzan. He really looks angry and cute at the same time. Looks like one who could give a nasty bite.

Great portrait, very good details.
Well done.

Espectacular primer plano de este pintoresco animal.
Excelentes detalles sobre todo en la boca y en la reflexion en sus ojos, donde tal
vez se pueda ver tu imagen alli.
Buen trabajo.

Spectacular close up of this picturesque aninal.
Excellent details mainly in the mouth and the reflection in its eyes, where perhaps your image can be seen there.
Good job.

What a moment! I never saw them as angry creatures but this capture makes him look frightening. Excellent shot, great details and pose. Really a nice close up.

Stay clear predators, this one as teeth :) I like this capture a lot. The composition and sharpness is excellent.

Very well done and thanks for posting.

That's okay, Nitzan, macro here. But how could you get so close to him?

Great shot. Is that you reflected in his right eye?

I like POV a lot.

Excellent job.

WELL, Well,this must be one of the most impressive pictures of this distant relative of the elephant I have ever seen, Nitzan!
Lone the snarl he is giving you, and you did a swell job in catching the experssion.
As a small nit, to help, not a critique - I do not know "how" you shot it, but the OOF teeth and tongue tells me the f-stop was wide open, I find that even f8 on telephoto is to Shallow when shooting head-on, so try to use f11 to f16 in this case, focus on the eyes, like you did, and the rest will be in focus.
Sorry, the green ones are spent.

Un excellent et impressionnant plan-rapproché, Nitzan.
Vraiment très impressionnant. J'espère pouvoir dormir ce soir!
Bravo! ... et merci...

This one angry animal. What teeth, I wouldn't want this 'cute' animal too close to me. Good clear shot of him. TFS.

Maybe it's a cute animal, but it looks dangerous too to me.
How could you get close enough to use the macro mode?
Nice picture, very sharp.

Good shot Nitzan,
I wouldn't say cute. Nice detail and clarity.
You've captured a good moment
Thanks for posting

Amazing capture Nitzan. I would guess that it took great presence of mind to take the shot successfully given the "dynamic" situation.

Woow animals also be emotional eheheh You captured the cool moment.Good details&liked the warm lighting&colour.

Man! this little guy rocks... and you guys are nuts thinking hes cute... cos that he aint. Nitzam - he rockshe texture, the color and the attitude. Its like hes screaming "get out of my face punk!" ... im like thinking hes gonna jump out at and bite me hard!!!! its kind of strange when i think that he aint going to cos he aint real and is way too little... a little guy with lots of anger issues. Cool pic Nitzan, cool pic. Nice light, great depth

Wild capture, Nitzan! I really like your POV and can see interesting reflections in his angry little eyes! The curl of the tongue is awesome!


This is an outstanding picture of an interesting animal. What I love about it is that you can see the elephantiness of both the incisors and the grinding teeth. Absolutely terrific shot. I'd love to borrow it for us in my Animal Life class.

great facen, TFS Ori

What a face!
I sure love this pic
Brilliant timing
