This week’s image, as voted for by our followers on Facebook, Instagram & Twitter is New Friendships Part II by @aikmacee Alexandra.

Continue reading for the inspiration behind Alexandra’s photo and equipment that they used.

“The equipment i used was a Canon 700D & 55-200mm Canon Lens.


This was my first visit to Paradise Wildlife Park in Hertfordshire since I was child, so I was very excited to see all the new and familiar animals on show. One of my favourite childhood animals to check out was the meerkats, so I was very pleased to see the enclosure was pretty much how I remembered too. The main feature is a big mound in the middle, that children can go in and see the meerkats up close. This is where I spotted this little guy having a bit of a sunbathe on the top. He then finally got up to inspect his surroundings - this is when I took the photo.

To finish, I like to add a little whimsy to my work when possible and the golden afternoon light and his curious look was perfect for it.”
