Mongoose sunrise


We took a jaunt up Marine Drive early on Saturday morning to enjoy the sunrise and came across a mongoose family at The Willows. Only one of them was willing the pose - I think it was more to catch the early morning sun, than to oblige me, because they are usually very shy animals. The two little ones kept us entertained with their antics but did not stay still long enough for me to get a decent picture.

Wow, a beautiful sunrise photo. Whenever I see something like a mongoose or any animal around here I realise how fortunate we are that our city isn't some concrete jungle without any life in it.

Sometimes your pictures are so good, and so beautiful, I can't believe it! Oh how I wish I could sit there on a rock and take it all in!

What a great shot! We used to have these little guys nipping in and out of our house (we had big sliding doors that were always open) to try and steal food from the kitchen! You could always hear when they were around because the birds would go crazy with alarm calls...
