It wasn't long after Bob decided to take a stand and be his own man, uhm meerkat, that people began to sit up and take notice.
An older photo from the Memphis Zoo, the first day of ownership of the D70.
Regrets for the cut off foot.

Ces sont des animaux bien particuliers que je ne connais pas, ils sont mognons comme cela sur deux pattes.
Photo prise au bon moment.
Bien à toi.

I just get mad with meerkats: your picture is very sharp, well taken and good subject. The comment, though, is outstanding...

Very comical, Cliff. Does this portend of what your D70 will be giving us? Is this indeed our future? Only kidding...A very clear, colourful and pleasing shot with varying expressions on the meerkat's faces. I would have been happier if you'd bought the D20, but you will get great results with your new cam. A fine opening shot. Best regards, John.

Hi Cliff, a very funny note and shot! A great catch with wonderful expressions on each one of the meerkats. Nice light and shadows too. Nice shot Cliff, and pts tomorrow!

prairie dogs!!!!!!!!!!!! you should write something about them in your note, people especially the non americans.. might be interested in knowing about them...
was there any way you could take their photograph from an angle below them???? that would make them really stand tall :)
also i'm kind of used to seeing photographs and film shots of these animals from that particular angle which is why i might be suggesting it to you
take care :)

Oh soo cute, it looks like all but 2 kats are looking at the same object, with identical expressions.

Stand tall or sitting pretty.
I love those little creatures.
Happy to know they are still around, the meercats.
