Have you read The Life of Pi? It has wonderful scenes with meerkats.

The head seems a little over exposed, as does the rock, but the timing and composition, along with the DoF, are nice :)

Great DOF, nice focus, just wish the sun had been a little less intense, esp. between his eye and ear. Overall well done

cute critter and nice shaloow DOF. The lighting on top his head and shoulders is a bit harsh, you might consider doing some adjustment there

I would've cropped the left side a little more, the background is a little distracting. Cute pose he did for you

Nicely shot.

nice image...if you try to drop the levels a bit more, your background will become really dark and the meerkat will improve in color and really stand out

One of the Sydney gtg'ers? The light is really good on this one except the slight overexposure, but the depth of field is awesome as is the cheeky look perfectly captured on his face! 7/10
