This was such a hilarious moment - she`d finally had enough of this baby bothering her It`s a moment that any parent would know oh so well... My entry in `s Motherhood Contest Closes 19/08/12 all entries can be found here [link] Meerkat IUCN Red List Conservation status - Least Concern
You know, without your back story, I would say that the bigger one was harming the little one. o.O
The closeness is just brilliant. I like how closely you've framed it as well, thus minimalising all that unnecessary space. The way the body is turned away from us makes it more profound... and the expression on the face of the one doing the pushing feels quite determined as well?
I like how the colours complement each other and how that works like the equivalent of a black and white contrast in terms of its concentration.
Thank you - so refreshing to have a proper comment than aww or that`s nice I probably spend too much time watching meerkats but do enjoy their antics, they always seem to be doing something interesting
It is a shame that zoos are needed - the only way most of these animals have to survive, so many have died out in the wild. I now put the conservation status in the description box now - frightening how "usual" species are threatened!
