More Zoo Animals

I love watching meerkats. Here were two who were just sitting still for us to photograph.


This little muddy prairie dog was posing for us behind his glass cage. You can see a few scratches on him.


Happy St. Patrick's Day if any of you are celebrating.

Oh how cute, my cat Casey loves to sit and watch the meercats on animal planet, he will stop what ever he is doing and just sit there in front of the tv and watch them, i will have to find the photo of him sitting there. It is the only show that he is interested in.

:) You've got to love those little faces.

You got a very good picture of the one with all the scars! Nicely done!

Neva said...

And....those meerkats were fun to watch....I can't believe we didn't think to take a picture of the 2 of us! Next time!

Oh my these are fabulous animal portraits.

You might like to travel to Ohio to see me wearing a blog wig. A kind of fun time we had on my granddaughter's birthday.

Precious little faces here. I wonder if they'd find my face, or yours, as pleasing?

Joy said...

Lilli & Nevada: That's funny, your cat addicted to the Meekcat Manor show. I guess even cats think they're cute.

Isadora: Yep, it's their cute little faces and antics that keep our attention for hours.

Neva: We should've taken a photo together. Perhaps your hubby will have another convention in SF.

Annie: Hmmm, I didn't think of that. The meerkats probably think we're scary giant creatures who bring them food.

Jim: So you have co-workers that lay around most of the day in the sun or just stare off into the distance? Haha!

Lincoln: Thanks, I was quite amazed how cooperative they were. I normally get butt shots at the zoo.

Joy: They're probably so used to all the cameras by now or perhaps they're attracted to the clicking noise of the shutter going off.
Happy St. Patty's Day to you too!

The Meerkats have so much personality. I think they should break into Hakunamata for you.
