A meerkat is a small carnivore in the mongoose family living in arid areas of South Africa. When on the alert the whole gang would sit upright looking for danger. When they feel safe one would act as lookout and position him on the highest point in the area. This photo was shot after sunset at Kogelbaai in the Western Cape. The light was already quite low. These two were not quite stationary and I wanted a fast shutter speed. I use a fairly high ISO and f11 which gave a shutter speed of 1/350 sec.
