Meercats are just so comic. I'm sure they know they're being photographed! This one was looking away, heard my shutter and immediately turned its head and looked hard straight at me with an almost Roland Rat questioning look as much as to say "'Ere, was that you taking my picture then?". I almost expected it to follow up with "You can't do that, ya' know, I'm an international licensed character, I am!"
