Wonderful capture in beautiful light. He looks curious something above him.

@Kyu: He looks up, he looks down, he looks left and right. The body is still and the head moves around checking all the time for any danger.

Superbe ! j'adore les suricates ! ils sont souvent en train de scruter l'horizon pour voir l'ennemi approcher et en cas de danger, ils crient... Il y a toujours un guetteurs dans les familles, ils doivent même se relayer pour faire le guet... Celui-ci est blanc , je n'en avais jamais vu de cette couleur...J'adore !*****
