My photographs are not always technically correct, I tend to break the rules but I do that knowing what the rules are and having a reason to do so. My photographic images are what and how I see the world around me in my minds eye—they are who I am.

    What a cute photo.. great detail and love the expression you have captured in those eyes.. I have watched them on the discovery channel and they are adorable.

  • Thanks Carol. These guys are really fun to photograph because of their expressions and they are also very busy which can create a challange in getting a sharp image.

    Bryan, this is adorable. What a great capture of this lovely little animal. I love their show on TV.. Such great detail. A wonderful curious expression on his little face. Great shot :))))

  • Thank you Sue—they are as much fun to watch at the zoo as they are on tv.

    Brilliant pose from Mr Meerkat, well done Bryan..

  • I got lucky and this one stood still for more than a half a second.

    Great image, Brian! I was at Point Defiance Zoo once long time ago. I need to visit it.

  • As zoos go I feel it is one of the better ones in our area. I worked as a volunteer keeper for 7 years at Point Defiance getting to work with some amazing animals but the meerkats were not there at that time so I didn’t get to experience the challenge they must present due to their inquisitive nature and busy habbits. I mostly took care of the elephants which is an experience I will always cherish.
