A few weeks ago, my girlfriend and I went to Melbourne zoo for her birthday. It was a fairly hot day, but the humidity and the later rain kept the animals fairly quiet.
The last enclosure we went to housed a few young meerkats, most of whom were lying about, not particularly fussed at the group watching them. One, however, had decided it wanted an escape. It ran up to the glass which separated them from the humans, and began digging a hole. Unable to get anywhere, it ran into a corner, then started looking around. I snapped the following shot just as it looked towards me.
The shot hasn't been edited in any way. I tried processing it in Aperture, but I felt I couldn't do much to improve the shot. I wish i focused about 5mm back, more towards its eye rather than the bridge of its nose, but at the speed which it was moving about, I'm stoked I got it anywhere near its eye.
