Sharing moments in time…

Meerkat mouthful…almost


I caught this guy in a huge yawn at the Wild Animal Park the other day.  I gives us a great “opportunity”,  in terms of yesterday’s photo challenge, to examine his dental work.  In this case, he has a little problem in that his lower fang is missing – he evidently hasn’t had time to go back and get fitted for a new one….Like always, I encourage you to click or double click on the photos to see the close-ups.

losing his "underbite"?

  1. Awesome picture. Nothing like yawning animals, especially when photographed so well! Kudos.

  2. The photo clarity is amazing!
    I posted three photos of the Safari Park hawks on FB; my Nikon P100 captured the wire cage material in front of the hawks in the first photo making it difficult to see the birds. In the two other photos I was able to focus on the hawks and make the cage wire almost invisible giving a clearer shot. I have only had my Nikon for a couple of weeks so I am still experimenting. I would be impressed (if not amazed) if you could make the wires completely disappear and have the hawks in perfect clarity. Is that even possible?

    • Interesting thought….I wonder what his (or her) voice would sound like?

    Hi Scott, just stumbled upon this great photo – I run a small blog on tumblr and I was wondering if I could put it up on the website? I would of course give you full credit. Thanks!
