Default The look-out.

It is easy to like the meerkats exhibits at the local parks. They are always fun to photograph and you can be sure that each of them take turns at guard duty serving as the look-out to warn the colony of any signs of trouble. A couple of shots from a recent zoo visit.

E-3 and 50-200.

....excellent!! These animals are so fun, it is difficult not to make a fun image but it takes a 50-200 to get one made right.

Thank you Bob. You are so right, the 50-200 is definitely one of my most-used lens whenever I'm going to the zoo.

Fun little guys aren't they? That first one is just right, the composition with the logs. second is a little bright but still tells the story. Well done.

Great shots, Steven!

But no one else said this so I guess it's up to me. Not much of a lookout if he let a reprobate like you nearby without a warning to the village, right?

Probably fooled them with the camouflaged hat I was wearing.
