Default A curious Kinkajou

Visited a friend recently, this is Otto, one of her lovely Kinks, he's a very friendly chappy. I was lucky to get this shot as well, they just don't keep still!
A momentary interest in his reflection in my lens gave me the upper hand i think!

Thanks for posting that photo, Sarah. I'd never heard of a Kinkajou before, so I learned something, as well as having a great photo to look at.

Very nice picture Sarah. Also I don't know this type of animal. Think we don't have those in Belgium.

This is a super shot of an animal that I have never seen before. Focus, color, contrast, combined with an interesting pose by the animal, all work together on this shot.

Didn't "Rolf Harris" sing a line about Kinkajou stew from "My boomarang won't come back"
Now I know what they look like...

Cool capture

Thank you everyone, i was surprised at how well it came out, they are nocturnal so the enclosure was quite dark too and my cam doesn't usually perform well at all in low light.
